It is tasteless and odourless, and can be used to create a variety of desserts, confectionery, and other foods. Agar agar is a gelling agent, which means it can be used to thicken and solidify liquids. It is heat stable, meaning it can be used in both hot and cold dishes. It is soluble in water, but not in alcohol.
