For 100g of H2O:

 

  • 5.7g Pharmaceutical Grade Starch (Pure Rice Starch 40%, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Zinc Oxide [ZnO] 17%, Magnesium Stearate [Mg(C18H35O2)2], Silicon Dioxide [SiO2]);
  • 2.9g Agar Agar (Agarose [C24H38O19], Agaropectin);
  • 6.9g Glycerol [C3H8O3];
  • 0.6g Fine Grain Powdered Peanut Shells (Arachis Hypogaea — circa 26% lignin, 15% hemicellulose, and 40% cellulose)

    Materials AnnotationsAluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is the aluminum salt of the reaction product of octenylsuccinic anhydride with starch, it is used as an anti-caking agent and a nonaqueous viscosity increasing agent; Zinc Oxide is an inorganic compound insoluble in water, used as a bulking agent and a colorant; Magnesium Stearate is an additive primarily used as a flow agent to prevent individual ingredients from sticking to each other; Silicon Dioxide is a natural compound used as an anti-caking agent; Agar is a jelly-like substance that forms the supporting structure in the cell walls of red algae (Rhodophyta); Glycerol is a simple polyol compound that is colorless, odorless, and non-toxic; Vinegar is an aqueous solution of acetic acid with a typical concentration of 5–8% acetic acid by volume; Lignin is a class of complex organic polymers that form key structural materials in the support tissues of most plants; Hemicellulose is one of a number of heteropolymer ( matrix polysaccharides) present in most plant cell walls, it has an amorphous structure; Cellulose is a molecule with a crystalline structure, consisting of a linear chain of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of atoms of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
