Steenbergs Arrowroot is a dry white powder of almost pure natural starch. Arrowroot is a neutral tasting and inodorous powder and is used as a thickening agent for gravy and casseroles. It thickens at a lower temperature than flour or cornstarch to form a perfect gel and is less likely to become sour during digestion.

Arrowroot takes its name from the Native American name, Araruta (flour root), for Maranta arundinacea. Maranta is a perennial herb that grows 2 - 6 ft tall, with branching stems, broad pointed leaves and small white flowers. To make arrowroot, the fleshy roots of year old plants are dug up, washed, peeled, crushed between rollers, and strained through a sieve. The pulp is washed repeatedly and the sediment is dried and reduced to a white powder.
Steenbergs are passionate about providing organic spices and organic cooking ingredients that are packed full with flavour, aroma and provenance.
Steenbergs Arrowroot can be used as a thickening agent for gravies, casseroles and jellies.
