Agar (or agar agar) is a gelantinous substance derived from seaweed.  It comes in both powdered and flake form.

Be very sure not to interchange the flake and powdered form ... one needs SIX times as much flaked agar as powder!





Gluten Free bread baking requires special adaptations to produce an end product that has both flavor and a soft texture, as the gluten in wheat performs both of these duties.

Adding flavorful ingredients, as well as use of xanthan or guar gum, flax seed, and agar will produce a loaf of bread that is both flavorful AND has a great texture and crumb.
