Arrowroot flour is a nutritious food, obtained from the fleshy rootstock of a tropical American plant. Arrowroot powder is an excellent thickening agent in many recipes. It is well-suited for infants or convalescents because it is easily digested.


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 herbs! And I have never tasted better Peppermint. I've started mixing teas for friends, and they love your herbs, too. :) My kids (almost 3 and almost 2) caught a cold at church a few weeks ago, and I've been giving them plain peppermint tea to help clear their noses when they get too stuffy. They think it's the best treat, and love it. My daughter especially loves the Sleepy Time Tea with Chamomile flowers. It's become our nightly 'thing' to have a cup of tea and read a bedtime or Bible story. Also, the Nutritional Herbology book has been of great help to me, and since I've started using Red Raspberry in most of my teas, my not-so-fun monthly female cramps have almost disappeared! Thank you so much for offering your herbs at such wonderful prices. I can't find better prices anywhere.
