Description: This very fine white powder has excellent thickening abilities (similar to cornstarch). It also has no pronounced flavour and does not add opacity to sauces which makes it the perfect companion in the kitchen! If you’re avoiding corn, Arrowroot is a great substitute for a thickening agent.
SUGGESTED USEUse this white powder as a thickening agent for sauces, soups and gravies, biscuits, puddings, jellies, and cakes! Arrowroot Powder can even prevent ice crystals forming in homemade ice cream and will not make fruit gel glazes go cloudy like corn flour… Woohoo! Note that arrowroot thickens at much lower temperatures than those needed by corn flour. (We think it has a much better flavour too!) Use two teaspoons of Arrowroot in a recipe for every 1 tablespoon of corn flour. Fun Fact: Arrowroot biscuits were eaten by people with unsettled stomach in the 19th century.
