Arrowroot powderArrowroot starch, Maranta arundinacea

Ingredient Type: Thickener

Arrowroot powder is a starchy white powder that is extracted from the roots of the arrowroot plant, which is native to South America. It is commonly used as a thickener and binding agent in the food industry, and it is also used as an ingredient in some protein powders and dietary supplements.

Arrowroot powder is known to be a good alternative to other thickening agents, such as cornstarch, because it is gluten-free and easy to digest. It is also low in calories and carbohydrates, making it a popular supplement for individuals who are looking to manage their weight.

Arrowroot powder is generally considered safe for consumption and is well-tolerated by most individuals. However, some people may experience digestive discomfort, such as bloating or gas, when consuming large amounts of starch. It is important to gradually increase your intake of arrowroot powder or any other starch to allow your body time to adjust.
