Product Information

Arrowroot powder is a natural root starch derived from the South American plant Maranta arundinacea. The starch is white, odorless, and tasteless and has been used for several thousands of years. It is suggested that arrowroot is termed as such for its application to wounds from poisoned arrows. The mashed up root was also used to heal insect stings and spider bites. Arrowroot contains fiber, fat, sugar, gum, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, saponins, carbohydrates, and proteins. It is considered a demulcent and emollient, and is highly digestible. It is often used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in food preparations, such as puddings, baked goods, sauces, fruit glazes and jellies. Arrowroot is often used as a substitute for cornstarch and is the main foundation for most body powders.
