We use quite a bit of agar in my lab to make DNA gels. I also like chocolate milk, largely due the texture provided by carrageenan. Both of these products come from algae and Morocco has started to limit the amount of algae that can be harvested on its shores. Some labs are starting to stockpile agar before the price goes up. An interesting blog post over at Nature.
