The perfect creamy firm texture
Vegan cheesecake gets its creamy firmness from agar-agar, a polysaccharide that can form a gel-like structure. It is derived from the cell walls of some types of algae (such as red algae) and comes from the East Asian region. This gelling agent is neutral in taste and a popular vegan substitute for gelatin.
