Bottled Spices Arrowroot Powder Size:
$6.69Botanical Name: Maranta arundinacea
Arrowroot is an excellent base for cream sauces, and clear glazes, and it doesn't lose its thickening ability in the presence of acid, like flour does. This quality makes it an excellent choice for thickening acidic fruits.
Directions for Use:
Before adding arrowroot to hot liquids, it should be mixed with cool-warm water or your cooking liquid (also cool-warm) to form a paste and gradually added to the recipe. The starch doesn't hold its thickness for long periods of time, so foods should be served immediately; reheating will also cause a loss of thickening.
For General use: 1 T. product will thicken 1 c. of liquid.
As a replacement for flour: 1 1/2 tsp. product is equal to 1 T. of flour.
As a replacement for cornstarch: 2 tsp. of product are equal to 1 T. of cornstarch. Product Notes:
Arrowroot is an easily digested, unrefined starch obtained from the roots of the Maranta arundinacea. Quality Notes:
Tapioca and other starches are sometimes mislabled
as arrowroot. We microscopically check the structure of
the starch cells of our arrowroot to insure it has not
been adulterated with other starches. Origin:
St. Vincent IslandProcessing Notes:
Arrowroot starch is made by washing the harvested roots, grinding them into a pulp, and mixing the pulp with water. The resulting mixture is strained (to remove the fibrous
material), allowed to settle, and air dried. It is
then ground into a fine powder.
