For over 7,000 years, Arrowroot Powder has been used by indigenous Caribbean tribes as a highly digestible starch in traditional Caribbean recipes.
Arrowroot is the perfect replacement for wheat and corn based flours. Due to it's pure starch nature, Arrowroot thickens at a lower temperature than cornstarch or conventional flour. This causes Arrowroot Flour to have a more neutral taste and very smooth consistency.
Our Arrowroot is derived from the rhizomes of the Maranta Arundinacea plant, found in India. The Arrowroot itself is picked, washed, and cleaned of its undesirable scales. The roots are then reduced to a pulp using large mortars, and then dried, allowing the insoluble liquids of the root to evaporate. What's left is our pure unadulterated USDA Organic Anthony's Arrowroot Powder.
Wait, what's that you say? You don't have any cooking needs for our Arrowroot Powder? Well perhaps you have recently been struck by a poisonous arrow and are seeking to treat your wound. Of course you are, and no doubt you've come to the right place. As the old saying goes, "When you get hit by a poisonous arrow, go to Amazon.com and search for Anthony's Arrowroot Powder". I know, my mother used to say it all the time as well. It has been suggested that the name "Arrowroot" was derived by a practice of ancient Caribbean tribes that used the liquid of the root as a dressing on poison-arrow wounds, as it draws out the poison when applied to the site of the injury.
However, as common as poisonous arrow wounds have become these days, we would definitely recommend using Anthony's Arrowroot Powder primarily for baking purposes, and not so much for poisonous arrow wound purposes.
Our USDA Organic Arrowroot Flour is certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and Batch tested and Verified Gluten-Free.
