Arrowroot Starch is a grain-free ingredient perfect for gluten free baking and for thickening sauces.


Arrowroot is an easily digested starch extracted from the roots of the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea. It is gluten free and can be used as a direct substitute for cornstarch for folks with corn allergies. It has no flavor of its own, so can be used to thicken any sauce, soup, stew, or pudding. Use in gluten free baking for light, delicate textures.

2 Reviews For "Arrowroot Starch"

  1. Great Cornstarch Replacement

    by Trish on 10 Mon,2010

    I have recently made the decision to cut out corn, wheat, gluten, and as much refined sugar as possible from my diet. I needed something to thicken up my sauces, stews, gravies, and casseroles without compromising flavor. I did a little internet browsing and found the arrowroot was commonly used as a thickening agent. I have used Bob's non-GF products and loved them, so I went back and found that my grocer also carried an entire GF line of his stuff as well. So I took it home and basically subbed it in for arrowroot, pretty much the same measurements. It's thicken beautifully without becoming too gummy. The only thing is that it can't be cooked for too long or else the sauces will thin back out. It seems to work great, though, in the oven while baking a casserole. I haven't tried it in any baked goods yet but plan on doing that soon. I really love all of the Bob's products I've tried so far, and the price just really can't be beaten when you are comparing it to other GF brands.

  2. I use this excellent ...

    by Dawn on 01 Sat,2010

    I use this excellent starch to lighten up gluten free baked goods. It helps pull moisture into the batter and lets the leavening work more effectively. It also adds a delightful peppery flavor, a little like black pepper, and is excellent in savory breads, biscuits or muffins. I even add it to my pancakes! :-)
