|Product name: ||Agar Agar|
Agar is Polysaccharides from various species of Rhodophyceae mainly belonging to the genus Gelidium. It is prepared by treating the algae with boiling water; the extract is filtered whilst hot, concentrated and dried. Agar is commercially available as white to pale yellow bundles consisting of thin, membranous agglutinated strips, or in cut, flaked, granulated, or powdered forms. Agar is a generic name given to a group of related molecules with a repeating unit of agarobiose formed basically by D- and L-galactose units interlinked with α-1,3 and α-1,4 linkages. Approximately every tenth D-galactopyranose unit contains a sulfate ester group. It is insoluble in cold water, but it is soluble in boiling water.
