Arrowroot Powder is typically used as a natural thickening agent for sauces such as sweet and sour sauce or fruit glazes. It is especially useful as a thickener for sauces cooked at low temperatures, because it does not require high heat like other vegetable starches. It will also thicken even in the presence of acidic fruits.
Arrowroot Powder also aids in the thickening of homemade ice cream, and even prevents ice crystals from forming.
Arrowroot is preferred to other thickening agents because it will not give a cloudy coloring to your sauce.
Since Arrowroot Powder is gluten free it can also be used as a substitute for wheat flour in baking recipes.
