About Agar Agar type wondergel.


Agar Agar type Wonder Gel is perfect vegetable substitute to traditional animal gelatin that provides a soft & delicate texture with smooth spreadability & creaminess. It is ideal for vegetarian & vegan diets as it is made from a natural plant-based source.

High versatility in applications such as cake glaze, decorative piping gel, yogurt, soft puddings, creamy custards, spreadable cheese etc.

WONDERGEL is easy to use without additional gelling aids, with high water binding capacity and high in dietary fibre. WONDERGEL has excellent synergy with sugar and other hydrocolloids and its low gelling point and easy and rapid dissolution at 70-80oC allows convenient management on industrial production lines. Wonder Gel is a replacement for LMPectin and Iota Carrageenan also.


WONDERGEL is available with different gel strength & texture characteristics.
