- Clearspring Agar Flakes are a high quality vegetarian alternative to gelatine for making desserts and jellies. They can also be used in aspics (aspics are meat-based jellies).
- Clearspring Agar Flakes made from the Gelidium species of sea plants in Japan, in the traditional manner. They have a neutral flavour and are free from any bleaching chemical or softening agents.
- Nowadays, almost all commercial agar-agar is made using sulphuric acid to dissolve the starches, and chemical bleaches and dyes to neutralise the colour and flavour of the sea plants. However, a few small craft producers, such as the Mizoguchi family who make Clearspring Agar Flakes, still use the traditional slow method.
