Agar Agar Recipe Contest Sponsored by Marine Chemicals, Kochi,India

Now this is the Contest details you were waiting for!

Marine Chemicals is the largest Agar Agar  manufacturer & exporter in India. They have a range of products suitable for manufacture of Confectionery, Jellies, Candies, Ice creams, Sweets industries, Glazing and Icing Coatings, Piping Jellies & many other innovative products. 

Currently they supply their products to most of the leading, confectionery manufacturers and companies in India. & other countries such as Australia, Austria, Belgium, Costa Rica, Colombia, Cuba, Denmark, Egypt, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iran, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mauritius, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Syria, Taiwan, Turkey, UAE, USA, Vietnam, Venezuela, etc 

Recently I received samples of their Agar Agar powder. This sachet comes with 25g Agar Agar powder and suitable for any Agar Agar recipes. I found this size of pack is convenient because we do not use much Agar Agar in a recipe.


Behind the sachet, they have given a detailed description of how to use their product including relevant quantities. So, there will not be any problem when use it into a recipe.

Agar Agar by Marine Chemicals is a 100% vegetarian product & it is also a Halal product. I am sure this is a great news for my vegetarian friends & some others who seek Halal products!

These few days, I prepared few desserts using Agar Agar by Marine Chemicals. This was a Agar Agar powder which I could work easily with my dessert recipes. Main thing I like is,It did not stick into the pan. The instruction was already given in the Sachet asking to drain Agar Agar once dissolved. So, it was really easy to prepare my dessert in few minutes.
Please check the below dessert recipes done by using Meron Agar Agar.

I am sure you all like to try different colourful Agar Agar recipes & also try your chance to win Agar Agar
