Arrowroot (Maranta Arundinacea) is a tall perennial that has swollen, fleshy rhizomes and long shiny leaves. Arrowroot is made by grinding the thick rhizomes into a starchy white powder that is used as a culinary and cosmetic thickening agent. This is a soothing nutritious food. In some tropical countries Arrowroot is applied to snake and insect bites and arrow wounds. This is believed to be the origin of the name.
Arrowroot makes a great thickener for sauces, gravies and puddings. Use it in place of Wheat Flour or Cornstarch. It cooks up clear, with a smooth texture and virtually no taste. Arrowroot can also be used as a flour in some baking recipes.
Country of Origin: Thailand
Mix with cold water before adding to sauces and gravies to prevent lumps. If used as a flour, add to recipes as called for and adjust amount as needed.

All the spices I ordered from Spices for Less have been up to my expectations. I have ordered from other on line spice dealers and the ones here are equal in quality and more economical.
This arrowroot has performed as expected in the home made pie fillings I have used it.
great substitute for corn starch
