What are the Types of Agar Products?



More than a few types of manufactured agar exist. 

Kaku-kanten, agar in bar form, comes in rectangular pieces weighing an average 7.5 g each. It is sold for home use in bags of one or two pieces. 


Agar is also sold in string form, termed hoso-kanten or ito-kanten. These strings are 28 to 36 cm in length, with a commercial unit having a net weight of 15 to 30 kg. Smaller quantities are sold to the public, and compactly packed strings are used for overseas delivery. 


The major seller, however, is powdered (fine) agar, although agar flakes are also in demand. Agar flakes are produced from Gelidium species via freezing process, whereas the powder is produced from alkali-treated Gracilaria using a pressing-dehydration (nonfreezing) method.
