Arrowroot Comments

Arrowroot Comments

Flavour and Colour: Snow white. Flavourless.

Breading: Browns quickly and well. Produces golden crispy coating.

Thickening: Excellent. Substitute for equal amount of cornstarch. Leftovers may need to be rethickened.

Baking: Substitute for 25-50% total flour. Will lighten baked goods.

Comments: Silky powder, much like cornstarch. Store tightly in sealed jar and refrigerate.
