1. Quick Detail :
Agar-Agar is a very popular food material, but it also stretch it’s
application to biotechnical, medical science, healthcare and
nutritional industry, manufacture of cosmetic products as well as
2. Description :
Agar is a mixture of a neutral, dominating polysaccharide called
"Agarose" and a charged polymer called "Agaropectin". The agarose
is composed of (1-4) linked 3,6-anhydro -a- - L - galactose
alternating with (1-3) linked - b - D - galactose.
Agar is a natural macromolecule multi_sugar product,which extracted
from porphyra and Gracilaria etc seaweeds as raw materials,refined
through scientific method.With various elements,it can nor only
refresh and clear rheamatism,but also whet the appetite.
Agar has been agreed by FDBA as a safe products,and aproved as a
food additive in the Food & Chemical Medicine Dictionary.
3. Applications :
A. Food industry
Agar-agar is an indispensable material to improve texture and
appearance of various food products
It can be used in the manufacture of candy, soft sweets, bakery,
canned meat, cold dish, fruit jelly etc.
The use of agar-agar in foods is based on its inherent properties:
1, High gelling capacity
2, Wide pH working range
3, Resistance to heat treatment
4, Large hysteresis (difference between melting and gelling points)
5, No effect on flavours
6, Reversible gels
7, Gel stability
Cultivate-base for Microorganism
nutrient agar is used throughout the world to provide a solid
surface containing medium for the growth of bacteria and fungi.
Agar is typically sold commercially as a powder that can be mixed
with water and prepared similarly to gelatin before use as a growth
medium. The basic agar formula can be used to grow most of the
microbes whose needs are known. More specific nutrient agars are
available, because some microbes prefer certain environmental
conditions over others.
In microbiology, agar is an important part of the equipment in a
laboratory. Because agar is not protein-based, it is not as readily
digested by bacteria. When scientists are trying to grow a culture,
agar is the growth medium of choice, since it will not turn into a
cloudy bacterial soup like animal derived gelatins can. The agar
can be enriched with nutrients for the bacteria to feed on, but the
agar itself will remain stable.
C. Healthcare and Nutritional Industry
Agar-agar is the natural pollution-free food. It contains various
elements, which can make cold dish or medicine taken with water. It
is a healthy food which can dispel surplus fat accumulated in
intestinal wall and lower blood sugar. Also, tagar-agar has the
reputation of bird’s nest in the dish, having another name called
the dish swallow.
D. Medicine industry
Agar-Agar is also a good medicine for constipation and diarrhea.
None the less, it is uniquely used for bio-technological products
such as culture medium for inspection of bacteria, gel for DNA
analysis (agarose), and cell culture of the orchid.
E. Cosmetics and Beauty Products
Agar-agar can act as milky liquid, additives for shampoo,
emulsifier of toothpaste or act as additives to skin lotions.
Agar-agar forms part of the family of hydrocolloids produced by
Hispanagar as a food ingredient (E-406).
