  • Description

    Also known as arrowroot flour or arrowroot starch, this product is made by grinding the thick arrowroot rhizomes (rootstalks) into a starchy powder. Dating back to over 7,000 years ago, arrowroot was once a very valuable ingredient to many indigenous cultures and is still used as an effective remedy in treating health issues. It’s simply a white, powdery starch that’s naturally gluten-free, grain-free, vegan and paleo-friendly.

  • Directions

    Mix an equal amount of arrowroot powder and cold water to create a slurry. Then whisk the mixture into a hot liquid for 30 seconds. 1 tablespoon of arrowroot slurry will thicken 1 cup of hot liquid. Substitute 2 teaspoons of arrowroot for 1 tablespoon of corn starch, or 1 teaspoon of arrowroot for 1 tablespoon of flour.

    Arrowroot is tasteless, won't change the color of your food and is neither affected by freezing nor weakened by acidic ingredients. Arrowroot imparts a shiny gloss to foods and doesn't turn your sauces cloudy. It thickens at a lower temperature than other starches such as flour or cornstarch and is less likely to burn while cooking.

  • Uses

    Arrowroot powder can be used as a thickener for sauces, gravies, or puddings and is well known for producing crystal clear fruit glazes and jellies. It also prevents ice crystals from forming in homemade ice cream! However, it is not always recommended for use with dairy-based products as it may cause a result in a slimy texture.

  • Storage

    Recommended shelf life is 12 months when stored in a cool, dry location.
