Arrowroot is a flavorless white powder commonly used to thicken sauces, soups, and other meals such as fruit pie fillings. It’s made out of starches derived from various tropical tubers, including the arrowroot plant Maranta arundinacea. Arrowroot powder is similar to cornstarch in that it thickens twice as well as wheat flour, and it has a neutral flavor and gives foods a glossy appearance. Arrowroot is gluten-free, vegan, and paleo-friendly, with a long shelf life to boot.
