Description

Organic Arrowroot Powder is a great natural thickener.

Organic Arrowroot Powder is extracted from the root of the arrowroot plant.  It can be used like flour and is a useful alternative to traditional wheat based flours.  It is great for thickening soups, custards and gravies in the place of cornflour.

This super stuff be can really helpful when you are baking flours which don’t naturally contain gluten such as organic coconut flour or organic chickpea flour due to its binding properties.

Try making your own cosmetics if you like being creative with natural products.   For a basic face mask mix 20g of Arrowroot Powder with 20g of organic neem powder and create a paste with water.  Smooth it on and leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing – and come out glowing!

If you like experimenting with speciality flours try our organic tigernut flourorganic almond flour or organic buckwheat flour.

Family Tip:

  1. Tapioca flour is perfect for homemade gravy, simple add your stock and some fine sea salt and thicken slowly with the tapioca.
  2. Tapioca can be used for baking as a thickener and binder so it is great in gluten free recipes.
