Also known as arrowroot starch or arrowroot powder is derived from a tropical South American plant and similar to corn starch, arrowroot is commonly used as a thickener in recipes. Unlike cornstarch, arrowroot is completely flavourless and will not impart a starchy taste into puddings or other dishes that it is used to thicken. Some of its benefits include improving heart health and digestion as well as boosting energy levels in the body.
