Marshmallow alternative

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi all...I'm new here and desperately trying to make a gelatin-free marshmallow.  A lot of vegan substitutes contain soy isolate and I cannot eat soy.  My goal is to make a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free marshmallow.  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!  The holidays are quickly approaching and I have some traditional dishes that call for marshmallows.

the gelatin is what makes marshmallows the way they are.  Its like looking for buttercream w/ no butter.  I hope you will find what you are lookig for..

You may want to use agar agar.

If you cannot use soy isolate powder , can you replace it for something else ? Good question ,

Let us know what you come up with.

I do not have firsthand experience with the following method, but it may point you in the right direction. Le Sanctuaire sells a Kappa Carrageenan Powder that is designed to be a one-to-one gelatin replacement. 'Tis called Genutine X-9303. Wicked expensive, but it might make all those marshmallow recipes on the 'net useful in vegan cooking.

Thanks for your comments and suggestions! I'm really determined to find a way to do this. I've heard agar agar does not work, but I will definitely look into the other alternative.

Wow, that xanthum gum marshmallow is definitely interesting and different. I'm surprised at the alternatives.

Use agar-agar it will have a better texture than xhanathan gum.
