Arrowroot powder, also commonly referred to as arrowroot starch or flour, is easily digested. People often use wheat flour or corn starch as thickening agents when cooking or baking. However, many people cannot eat these because of allergies, or choose not to because they are trying to avoid genetically engineered food such as corn. For those people looking for an all natural thickener, arrowroot powder is a great alternative!
To use arrowroot powder, make slurry by mixing it with an equal amount of cold water, then whisk the mixture into hot liquid for about 30 seconds. Remove from heat immediately to prevent mixture from thinning. One tablespoon arrowroot slurry will
thicken one cup of hot liquid.
