   Introduction

Arrowroot powder is the dried root of the arrowroot plant. It is valued chiefly for its thickening properties, and is often used in thickening clear sauces and glazes and jellies. It is also used as a primary ingredient in infant cookies, where its digestibility makes it an excellent alternative to flour. It is said to help soothe the pain of conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, and is considered a nutritious and easily digested food starch for infants and elderly patients with bowel complaints. Arrowroot powder is also often used as a substitute for talcum in baby powder and body powder. The South American Arawak tribe used it as an antidote for poisoned arrows, thus its name, and it also is considered to be an effective antidote to vegetable poisons.


   Description

 

A perennial plant about two feet high, arrowroot has small white flowers; and fruits about the size and form of currants. The rootstocks are dug when the plant is a year old, and often exceed 1 foot (30 cm) in length and 0.75 inches (19 mm) in diameter. They are yellowish white, jointed and covered with loose scales. Arrowroot is a form of starch derived from the root of a plant that grows in tropical regions. Processed into a white powder, arrowroot is useful as a thickening agent for soups and sauces.
