Arrowroot somewhat resembles a sweet potato with its large, starchy tubers.  The name ‘Arrowroot’ is thought to have come from the Arawak people, who used a paste made from the powder to treat poisoned arrow wounds.

This nutrient-rich plant starch, often mistaken as but similar to tapioca flour, is obtained from the fleshy rootstock of a tropical South American plant. Arrowroot is an excellent thickening agent (a healthy substitute for cornstarch) and is often used in gluten-free baking.

Common Name: Arrowroot

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.
