Arrowroot Powder - Gluten Free. Steenbergs Arrowroot is a dry white powder of almost pure natural starch. Arrowroot is a neutral tasting and in-odorous powder and used as a thickening agent for gravies, casseroles and jellies.
It thickens at a lower temperature than flour or cornstarch to a perfect gel and is less likely to become sour during digestion than farinaceous foods, so is good for the sick and delicate.
Arrowroot is easy to use as a thickening agent - simply put a teaspoon into a bowl or mug and add a little water to make a paste - then add a spoon of the sauce you wish to thicken, mix it up and pour all the contents of the mug / bowl into the sauce.
Arrowroot adds a lovely sheen to the sauce as well as being less prevalent to lumping up.
To switch from a gluten diet to one of arrowroot, substitute one teaspoon of arrowroot for one tablespoon of wheat flour, or two teaspoons of arrowroot for one tablespoon of cornstarch.
