Gels for vacuum packing

In the General Sous Vide Questions Forum
along the lines of making a liquid into a gel, so that it can be vacuum packed with a typical vacuum sealer (not a flat restaurant type),

doing it with gelatin means it will melt under the heat of cooking; a good thing!

Has anyone done it with Agar or other chemicals rather than gelatin?
Usually playing with molecular techniques, people are trying to make heat STABLE gels - the idea here being rather the opposite

anyone, any ideas?

I haven't tested this out with any other chemicals, though I just got my started kit for Christmas so I'm just starting to play around with them.

Don't forget you can always freeze (non-alcoholic) liquids as well.
