Arrowroot Powder (ACO) 500g

Organic arrowroot powder, also known as arrowroot starch, is the easily digested starch obtained from the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea. It is valued as a thickening agent, especially when a clear or glossy appearance is desired, often being used in puddings, pies, gravies and other sauces. It is also used in baked goods. Arrowroot powder is neutral tasting and tolerates acidic ingredients, such as citrus.

No GMO. Naturally free from gluten.

How to Use 

Organic arrowroot powder does not turn sauces cloudy (unlike cornflour) so is often used when a clear or glossy appearance is desired. 

Use about 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder to 1 cup of sauce or liquid to be thickened. Firstly, mix the arrowroot with a small amount of water then add slowly to the dish stirring constantly. Heat over a medium or high heat for about 5 mins or until the sauce is thickened.

Arrowroot powder is also commonly used for making puddings and fruit preserves, as well as baking cakes or cookies to help "lighten" heavy textures.

Growing & Processing

This organic arrowroot is the easily digestible starch obtained from the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea from India. The starch is removed from the fibrous component of the root before being dried, finely ground and packed in Australia.
