CINOGEL Gellan Gum:Hydrocolloid Formula-Clear liquid by agar filtration

Clear liquid by agar filtration 

1000 g cloudy liquid or puree
0.7-1.8 g agar (0.07-0.18%)
· Strain liquid to remove particles 
· Bring to simmer, add agar and stir to dissolve.Let cool
and freeze 
Line a strainer with a cheese cloth
or a coffee filter and place the strainer over a
· Place the frozen block in the strainer and
allow the clear liquid to drain out of the agar
An agar filtration typically takes 8
hours compared to 2-3 days for a gelatin

Tip from Ideas in food: Circumvent freezing and speed up process by vacuuming the set
agar gel, then filter to obtain clear juice in no time.
Tip: Gelatin can also be used. agar filtrations are faster (typically12h vs. 48h for gelatin) 
and give higher yields(typically 75% vs. 40-60% for gelatin).
