So I got my hands on geogard 221 and planning on using it on my flaxseed gel. The instructions say that 0,5%-1% should be used...but how do I calculate it????


TIA!!

    You need a kitchen scale to weigh your ingredients. I suggest getting one that increases in 1 gram increments. The 0.5 - 1.0% is the percentage of your final formula.

    For easy math, say you want to make a 500 gram batch of gel. Your formula will be ...

    Gel......................99% ......495 grams
    Preservative ........ 1% ......... 5 grams

    Total...................100% ..... 500 grams

    Good luck! :)
