Arrowroot - Powder (Yucca Root) Raw, Organic (8 oz)

Also known as: Cassava, Manihot, Manicot, Yuca, Yucca, Tapioca, Mandioca

Arrowroot Powder, which is also called Manihot esculenta, is commonly used as a thickening agent for sauces, fruit pie fillings, glazes and puddings. It's mainly cultivated and eaten in tropical regions; it started off in Northern Brazil, but eventually made its way across the South American continent and over to Africa and Asia. It's prized for its ability to grow in low-nutrient soils and harvest quickly. It's also loved for its culinary versatility. Cassava can be mashed, cooked into soups or fried into, well, fries. Tapioca is a starch extracted from the cassava root. It can be made into flour -- it has a similar texture to cornstarch -- which is often times used in gluten-free breads. Arrowroot is naturally gluten free. The starch also freezes and dissolves well at lower temperatures. In fact, it should be only cooked over low heat since it doesn’t endure high temperature cooking and does not reheat well. Also, arrowroot does not do well in dairy-based cream sauces.
