So, what is pfeilwurzelstärke?

Pfeilwurzelstärke, also known as arrowroot starch, is a gluten-free and paleo-friendly food ingredient derived from the rhizomes of the Maranta arundinacea plant. It has a fine texture and neutral taste, making it a versatile thickener for sauces, gravies, and desserts. Pfeilwurzelstärke is also used in gluten-free baking to improve texture and moisture retention. Its high amylose content makes it resistant to breakdown during cooking, resulting in a smoother and more stable consistency. Additionally, pfeilwurzelstärke is known for its digestive benefits, as it is easily digestible and may help alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders.
