Arrowroot powder is a starch, useful for baking, desserts and as a thickener, that is extracted from the tropical arrowroot plant (Maranta arundinacea).  This naturally gluten and grain-free organic arrowroot has a neutral flavour and aroma. It is more easily digested than some thickeners and is a good substitute for corn flour.


How to Use:

Arrowroot is a great thickener to use in sauces and soups for a clear or glossy finish. Mix 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder (for each cup of sauce) with a little water until a smooth paste. Slowly add to sauce and stir constantly while gently simmering for 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Use arrowroot as a binder to replace eggs in burgers and patties; or dust foods before frying for a crisp result.

As arrowroot powder is acid tolerant and has no distinctive flavour it can be used with citrus and fruits in puddings and desserts. Use in place of pectin and citric acid in home-made jam. Often added to gluten-free flour mixes, arrowroot powder assists in binding and helps to give a light texture to bread, cakes and biscuits.

Storage:

Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Refrigeration recommended in warm climates.

Shelf Life:

Up to 36 months when stored as above. See Best Before date.
