Agarose is a polysaccharide formed by alpha and beta galactoses through 1-4 bonds that is extracted from Gelidium and Gracilaria algae.Its fundamental repeating unit, called agarobiose, builds long chains and its structure contains both charged groups (such as sulfates and pyruvates) and uncharged groups, all of which are responsible for the properties of agarose.

Agar-agar is a polysaccharide obtained from the cell wall of some Gelidium and Gracilaria species. It is also sometimes called 'vegetable gelatin' or 'Japanese gelatin', referring to the origin of this hydrocolloid.

It is classified as a thickening additive, with the E-406 nomenclature, and its gelling properties are used to thicken a number of products without altering their color, odor and flavor.

In addition to being increasingly used in kitchens across the world due to its multiple beneficial properties and as a bacteriological culture medium, the versatility of this hydrocolloid surprises us once again with a new use.
