After purchasing agar from http://Nutricargo.com, who has changed names from Forest Rx, which should have been a red flag, I found that the product was inferior. This agar agar was claimed to be at a gel strength of 950g/cm2, which is superior to most. However, when I attempted to use it in a recipe I found that it would not gel at all. It made a syrup. So I tried to use double the amount of agar with the same result. Thinking maybe it is my recipe that is bad I tried several others with the same result.
I asked NutriCargo, LLC (formerly Forest Rx) for a refund that was promptly denied. They sent me a copy of this disclaimer:

We have a review that can be seen on our website where the customer says,"1/30/12I love this agar, it is very concentrated. I used to have to use 1 Tablespoon per cup of water with another brand. This I only use 1 teaspoon per cup of water to get a gel for my vegan cheese. It is far superior to the others I've tried. I highly recommend this. "
In the disclaimer you will notice that they claim "We do not offer recipes, dosage or any advice on how to use the product.", then go to quote a recipe "1/30/12I love this agar, it is very concentrated. I used to have to use 1 Tablespoon per cup of water with another brand. This I only use 1 teaspoon per cup of water to get a gel for my vegan cheese. It is far superior to the others I've tried. I highly recommend this. "
My advice is to look elsewhere for any product they you may wish to purchase from http://Nutricargo.com. Good products don't need disclaimers. The customer should always be right and refunds should be issued when asked.
