Agar: a key ingredient for crafting vegan cheese and yogurt

In the production of vegan cheeses, commonly utilized ingredients include nuts, soy, and vegetable oils. However, the challenge often lies in replicating the desired texture of non-vegan products.

To address this issue, agar serves as an excellent substitute for rennet, offering a versatile range of textures from soft to hard. Incorporating agar not only enhances the recipe’s nutritional profile but also pairs impeccably with dried fruits. Its application extends beyond homemade cheeses, as agar is increasingly featured in commercially manufactured vegan cheeses.

An array of recipes caters to crafting vegan cheeses, allowing for the recreation of various styles. Whether aiming to replicate firm cheddar, semi-soft varieties like mozzarella or feta, or creamy spreads, diverse options abound. QSol Soft agar stands out as a fitting choice for these recipes.

The challenge of achieving optimal consistency extends beyond vegan cheese formulations to vegan yogurts, which commonly exhibit a thinner texture. Agar proves to be an effective remedy for this concern, owing to its exceptional gelling properties.
