Arrowroot Flour or Powder 500g


Arrowroot powder (sometimes called arrowroot starch) is a great gluten-free thickener. It is often used in puddings, pies, gravies and other sauces. It is also used in baked goods.

Unlike cornflour, arrowroot does not turn sauces cloudy so is often used when a clear or glossy appearance is desired.

Use about 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder to 1 cup of sauce or liquid to be thickened. Firstly, mix the arrowroot with a small amount of water then add slowly to the dish stirring constantly. Heat over a medium or high heat for about 5 mins or until the sauce is thickened.

This organic arrowroot is the easily digestible starch obtained from the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea. The starch is removed from the fibrous component of the root before being dried and finely ground.
