Principles of the Procedure Nutrient Agar consists of peptone, beef extract, and agar. This relatively simple formulation provides the nutrients necessary for the growth of a large number of microorganisms that are not excessively fastidious.

Peptones are the principle sources of organic nitrogen, particularly amino acids and long-chained peptides. Agar is the solidifying agent.
