Arrowroot powder is a white, flavourless powder produced from the rhizomes of tropical plant arrowroot. It is commonly used to thicken food items like gravy, puddings and soups. It is twice powerful than wheat flour as a thickening agent and it is gluten free. Though arrowroot powder is similar to cornstarch, it is finer and more absorbent.
Arrowroot powder is unique because of its medicinal qualities. It is a natural medicine for diarrhoea. Drinking a solution of arrowroot powder can give fast relief from diarrhoea without any side effects.
It is also added in the cosmetic products like powders and lotions for wet rashes. We, at Vedagiri Herbals, make the powder with natural processing methods in order to retain the qualities as such.
