Arrowroot Powder - 400g
Also known as arrowroot flour or arrowroot starch, this product is made by grinding the thick arrowroot rhizomes (rootstalks) into a starchy powder. Dating back to over 7,000 years ago, arrowroot was once a very valuable ingredient to many indigenous cultures, and is still used as an effective remedy in treating health issues nowadays.
Directions: Mix an equal amount of arrowroot powder and cold water to create a slurry. Then whisk the mixture into a hot liquid for 30 seconds. 1 tablespoon of arrowroot slurry will thicken 1 cup of hot liquid. Substitute 2 teaspoons of arrowroot for 1 tablespoon of corn starch, or 1 teaspoon of arrowroot for 1 tablespoon of flour.
Uses: Arrowroot powder is commonly used as a thickener for sauces, pudding, and glazes since it imparts a shiny gloss on foods. However, it is not recommended for use with dairy-based products as it may cause a slimy texture. Arrowroot is naturally gluten-free, which makes it a healthier alternative for bread and pasta. In comparison to cornstarch, it has a more neutral flavour so it is well-suited for delicately flavoured foods.
Storage: Recommended shelf life is 12 months when stored in a cool, dry location.
