Arrowroot powder can be used as a thickener for sauces, gravies, puddings, and jellies. Unlike cornstarch or flour, arrowroot powder has a completely neutral taste, and will not make your sauces turn cloudy. It's also great for gluten-free baking because it helps make cakes and cookies lighter and softer.

Arrowroot powder is also known as arrowroot flour and arrowroot starch.

How to Use Arrowroot Powder

Mix 2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder with 1/4 cup of water before adding it as a thickener to your sauces and stews. Since arrowroot powder breaks down more quickly than cornstarch, it is important to add it towards the end of your recipe, so it isn't subject to high temperatures for too long. Arrowroot is tasteless and won't change the color of your foods. Another advantage is that it freezes well.

Arrowroot powder is also a great softening agent for your baked goods, making it a wonderful addition to gluten-free baking. When baking with nut flours, adding one tablespoon of arrowroot starch to your recipes will make it so that your cakes, cookies, and muffins are softer and less dense.

How is Arrowroot Powder Made?

Arrowroot powder is an easily digestible starch derived from the stock of the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea. The starch is separated from the fibrous component of the root in a process that involves cutting the root into small pieces and mashing it into a pulp-like matter. The pulp is then forced through a screen to obtain only the fine starch, at which point it is dried and ground into a powder.

“Ordered components for a gluten-free flour mix--for the first time. The products got here quickly and in quality condition--love the zip lock closure so I Don't have to find another receptacle to put in the leftovers. My first attempt at using my mix was a big success. Looking forward ongoing business with Nuts. :)

“I have just received my 2nd order from Nuts.com(which I ordered yesterday & arrived today), and I am completely thrilled! I have become rather addicted to their Black currant tea, which is sublime! I have nothing but excellent things to say about the quality. I highly recommend the Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, Arrowroot powder, tea & of course, nuts. Thank you nuts.com for helping me on my road to health”

“Hi Nutty Buddies: Shipment arrived today and must say I love, love, love the nutty shipping box. Now: to the important part - this weekend my grandson and I are going to put the almond flour and arrowroot powder to work in a bread recipe (from the Paleo Bread book). I love bread and since I'm trying to go wheat-free it's hard to find tasty bread. I'm so happy I could find both almond flour and arrowroot powder at such great prices. Looking forward to baking yummy bread and ordering from you in the future.
