With a neutral flavor and odorless smell, our organic arrowroot powder is commonly used as a thickening agent to make pudding and jellies as well as an ingredient in baked goods such as biscuits and cakes. Being that organic arrowroot powder is gluten free, it is a good replacement for wheat flour for those who have a gluten intolerance. If using as a thickening agent, it thickens at lower temperatures compared to cornstarch and wheat flour. It is recommended to mix with a cool liquid before adding to a hot liquid. Overheating can break down its thickening property so it's important not to heat for too long.
Arrowroot is a starch extracted from the roots of various tropical plants but most commonly cassava. It has a long history in the Americas with evidence that arrowroot was cultivated as early as 7,000 years ago. The starch from the arrowroot tubers is extracted through a process of washing, draining and crushing. Once the tubers are reduced to a pulp, the milky liquid is run through a sieve and the pure starch, which is insoluble, is allowed to settle at the bottom. It is then dried either in the sun or in a drying house. The resulting powder is then quickly packaged into air-tight packages.
