Using agar as a suspending agent with a concentration of 0.01~0.05% can make the particles uniformly suspended.
Agar is used in beverage products. Its function is to suspend the solid in the beverage evenly without sinking.
It is characterized by long suspension time and shelf life, which cannot be replaced by other suspension agents. Good transparency, good fluidity, and a smooth taste without peculiar smells.
The amount of agar used is about 2.5%. Soft candy made with glucose solution and white granulated sugar is much better in transparency and taste than other soft candy.
Agar is used in solid foods. Its function is to solidify and form colloid, which is used as the main raw material to mix other auxiliary materials, such as sugar solution, granulated sugar, spices, etc.

0.2~0.5% agar can form an effective gel for binding meat fragments.

Characteristics of high-quality agar
White and bright, clean and transparent, strong elasticity, tenacity, and fastness.
Characteristics of inferior agar
The color is yellow and dark. It is opaque, weak in elasticity, hard and brittle, and not tough.
Characteristics of false agar
The appearance is white without luster, with high impurity content and poor transparency (note: a large number of insoluble substances in water can be found after the solution of 1% concentration is dissolved). If you soak it in cold or warm water for about 30 minutes, it will soon absorb water and swell and recover, but real agar does not have this phenomenon.
