From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • Arrowroot is a food, and thus we keep it in the kitchen. We add it to many food recipes (hot cereals, sauces, gravies, meat dishes, vegetable dishes, stir-fry, baby food and formulas, waffles and pancakes, ice cream, etc.).
  • It's excellent as a thickener that adds nutrition to your recipes, rather than cornstarch which is highly processed.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing) and children.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.

arrowroot powder
by Leigh Gleeson on Jan 3, 2013

I have used arrowroot powder instead of talcum powder for years to avoid the alleged aluminium in talc...now I am going to start cooking with it as I heard elsewhere it had a beneficial calcium content.

Good replacement

As a person who is allergic to corn and all of its products, I have used arrowroot for years in place of cornstarch and found it to make an excellent lemon meringue pie, in addition to gravies and sauces. I also mix it in when I make my own baking powder.

Arrowroot saves the Pie!
by Irina from Ohio on Jun 9, 2008

Hello, I just wanted to share how much I love this arrowroot powder. I use it in gravy and it is delicious! It has also saved my pumpkin pie! I accidentally added a whole can of evaporated milk, (which was a total of 12 oz.) when the recipe only asked for 5 oz. My pie filling seemed “runny” and useless. I decided to throw in a couple heaping TBLS. of the arrowroot powder, stirred it up and hoped for the best. It set perfectly and turned out delicious!

I love your store! I have been very happy with the prices on your herbs, and books as well as the products themselves. Practical Herbalism is one of my favorites, allowing me to successfully treat my husband (who was a skeptic) and his gout. It is exciting to be able to take a few common herbs (formerly known as weeds!) and be able to do good for others. I like having the resources at my fingertips so we don't have to run to the doctor for every issue. I have also had successes with The Immune Booster tincture recipe, and by following advice in The ABC Herbal and The How to Herb Book. I am currently making a Catnip and Fennel tincture for my 7 week-old for his gassy times. Anyhow, thank you for the book recommendations on your website. I tell people about your site whenever I can!
