Whip up a satisfying sweet dish that is delicious for the tastebuds and easy on the waistline with this kanten gelatin dessert. Kanten is the Japanese word for agar-agar; a virtually calorie-free, high-fibre, gelatinous substance derived from algae and used as a thickener, solidifier, and (more recently) diet aid. This dish combines kanten with traditional Japanese sweet foods, giving it a classic look and taste.
