Want to enjoy Jello treats but you can’t because it’s made from animal products?
Luckily, there is a plant-based alternative to gelatin. Filipinos know it as gulaman. In English, it’s been called agar-agar.
Agar is a type of seaweed that has extremely powerful thickening and gelling properties. It is commonly used by modernist chefs who specialize in molecular gastronomy, but you don’t need a chemistry degree to figure out how to make dessert goodies with it.
Simply use gulaman powder mixes from the Philippines!
What fun things can you do with gulaman? How about using it to make a Japanese raindrop cake! 🙂
