Description

Arrowroot powder is a type of starch that can be used instead of cornflour in many ways, including baking, but is most appreciated as a thickener of liquids because it makes sparkling clear jellies, whereas using cornflour always gives cloudy results.

Victorians credited arrowroot with many health-giving properties, noting that it was very easily digested and tolerated by children and invalids. Now we know it is not particularly nutritious, is quite high in carbohydrates and quite low in protein (gluten). It is not a wheat flour substitute in bread making but when included in biscuits it gives a specially satisfying and mild flavour.
