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 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!

Thank you so much! I cannot believe how on the ball you guys were with shipping my order. I received it today, and the lovely aroma of fresh herbs saturated the air as I opened the box. I am so impressed with the quality, and I can't wait to dip into some of those tea leaves. ~Karmen
