Arrowroot powder, also called Arrowroot flour or Arrowroot starch is an effective thickening agent used to add texture and structure in cooking and baking applications.
Arrowroot powder is made by extracting the starches from the tubers of the arrowroot plant,(Maranata Arundinacea) and is cultivated from tropical climates.This easily digestible starch is an excellent nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and corn-free thickener and binder. A huge plus is that it is flavourless, so it can be seamlessly added to savoury dishes and baked goods.
The Arrowroot starch is a very fine white powder that has excellent thickening abilities similar to corn starch.It also has no pronounced flavour and does not add opacity to sauces. If youare avoiding corn, potatoes, and gluten, Arrowroot starch is a good substitute for a thickening agent.
This white silky powder also works as a great thickener for many cosmetics, natural deodorants, and even body powder recipes.
