Spicetec Arrowroot Powder (50 lb bag). Temporarily Out of Stock.  Arrowroot (or arrow root) is a naturally gluten free starch derived from the roots of a tropical plant. Arrowroot has almost no flavor of its own, but blends well with other sweet and savory flavors.

Arrow root starch has many culinary and baking applications. For example it makes clear, shimmering fruit gels. It can also be used as a thickener for acidic foods, such as Asian sweet and sour sauce. It is invaluable in cooking when you wish to have a clear, thickened sauce (such as a fruit sauce) because it will not make the sauce go cloudy (as many other starches and flours do).

Arrowroot is generally used in combination with other starches and flours in gluten-free baking.

In corn-free diets arrowroot can be used as a substitute for cornstarch. Its properties are slightly different: it thickens at a lower temperature than cornstarch. In addition it is not weakened by acidic ingredients such as vinegar or lemon juice. It has neutral taste, and is not affected by freezing. Arrowroot doesn't mix well with dairy products.

When using arrowroot as a thickener, it is recommended to mix the arrowroot powder with a cool liquid before adding to a hot fluid. The mixture should be heated only until the mixture thickens and removed from the heat immediately, as overheating tends to break down arrowroot's thickening property.

Spicetec Arrow Root Powder is manufactured under strict GMP/HACCP practices that assure no corn or wheat is present in the finished product.

This is a special-order item. Allow approximately 10 days for delivery.
