Agar Supplier

I am searching for agar for as cheap as possible. I am unsure about what will work and what won't. I would think I would need a powder, or at least a clear kind. My best result was Bulk Foods. Would this be a good type? Can it be found cheaper. Money has become quite the object for now. Thanks for any help

I ordered premixed dry PDA from sporeworks and it has worked awesome. Ive done over 30 petri dishs from the jar they sent me and still have more then half of the dry agar left. You get 8oz for $20.

Good bye.

let me clarify that I want agar only, no premixes, my goal is to experiment with different agar recipes. 8oz for $20? Bulk foods has 20oz for ~$25! Anyway, I'm primarily concerend with whether or not I can use Bulk Foods' agar successfully, I would be surprised to find a much lower price.

Food grade agar can be used, it's what I use mostly. Though bacterialogical grade agar would most likely be better suited for testing agar recipes. Although maybe not. The plates just run a little slower and sometimes stall with food grade, but for all intensive purposes, it works fine. I have used both, and stick with food - because of cost.
