You can all thank Jonathan, our resident founding CEO and
self-admitted Japanese food addict for adding this to our catalog
and we are absolutely tickled pink (or you could say white and
red) to be adding what is arguably the best dessert enhancer
with no calories anywhere plus a great fiber addition!
THE healthy and vegan alternative to commercial animal or
chemical derived gelatins.
It is made of a sea vegetable that has been freeze dried and has
no discernable flavor.
Andrea is the dessert expert in our ranks and she has taken to
Kanten like a bee to honey. Andrea uses kanten to thicken her
fruit aspics, custards and pie fillings.
Andrea makes a pomegranate and pear aspic that is divine. Break
one bar into pieces and place in 3 cups of water or juice. Bring to
a boil without a lid, stirring occasionally. Reduce the flame to low
and simmer for 15 minutes until dissolved. Add the pomegranate
juice and add thinly sliced pears, cook for 3 to 4 minutes until
tender and pour into a mold. Put aside to gel for 60 minutes or
refrigerate to speed gelling.
In Japan, all sea vegetables are valued for their believed ability to
enrich and cleanse the blood. MiracleNoodle Agar Agar is low
carb, contains no sodium, zero calories and is fat free and as
Jonathan keeps reminding us is a good fiber source, as well
as providing calcium and iron!
Although known in Japan for ages, kanten has taken the country
by storm as a weight loss aid.
