Eden Foods began nearly fifty years ago in the late 1960’s during the original natural food movement. The company was founded at a time when healthful, natural foods were largely unavailable, so they began making their own, using ingredients from local farmers. Today, Eden Foods products are found all over the world. Their agar agar flakes are well-known as a natural, vegetarian alternative to traditional thickeners and gelatins.
Eden Foods Agar Agar Flakes are made entirely from seaweed. The flakes are tasteless, odorless, fat free, and gluten free. Seaweed is a vegetable, so it’s also low calorie, low carb, and high in fiber. If you’re cooking for people with certain dietary restrictions, agar agar can be a very good option. Agar agar also contains no animal by-products, so it’s vegetarian and vegan friendly!
