As for the use of agar, first of all, agar is non-nutritive, which means that ordinary organisms, even microbes, do not break it down (although agar belongs to sugar). Therefore, it is commonly used as a biological medium, or some drug carrier.

In addition, it is more widely used in the food industry as a thickener and coagulant. Agar melts at about 90 degrees, and solidifies at about 40 degrees.
