So, what is arrowroot?

Arrowroot is a versatile starch extracted from the rhizomes of the arrowroot plant. This fine, white powder has been used for centuries as a thickener in cooking and baking, as well as a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour. Arrowroot's neutral flavor and ability to thicken at low temperatures make it an ideal ingredient for delicate sauces, custards, and pie fillings. It is also an excellent binding agent for gluten-free baking, producing light and fluffy baked goods. With its high nutritional value, easy digestibility, and versatility, arrowroot is a popular choice for health-conscious and allergy-prone consumers.
