About the Brand
Bob's Red Mill is dedicated to the manufacturing of natural foods in the natural way. In their own words: "With all the sophisticated knowledge of recent times, no machinery has yet been developed that grinds grains into flour quite as well as our flint-hard quartz millstones quarried in France and used by discriminating millers since early Roman times."
"Our well-dressed (sharpened) sets of millstones turn the highest quality wheat into a finer, better baking bread flour than all the hammer mills, steel roller mills, steel buhr mills, or pulverizers ever built! These slow turning millstones grind the bran, endosperm, and germ (containing its nutritious wheat germ oil) into flour in a cool natural way, creating a more assimilable food."
Bob's Red Mill stone grinds all common and most uncommon grains into flours and meals on its over 100-year-old mills. They mix them into an astounding array of unique cereals, pancake and waffle mixes, machine and hand-made bread mixes, quick bread mixes, gluten-free mixes, and specialty grain products.

1) It adds "hold" if you aren't able to have eggs in a recipe. It's good to add to a mixture of rice flours, for example, which do not hold together well on their own.
2) It can also be used as a thickener in lieu of cornstarch.
On the flip side, arrowroot has a very strong flavor, so I would not personally use it as the only flour in a recipe (unless using it as a minor ingredient, such as a cornstarch thickener substitute).
As a helpful tip, often you will see the term "arrowroot powder" in recipes. "Arrowroot flour" is interchangeable with this term.
Interestingly, arrowroot was the antidote for poisonous arrows used by the Arawak Indians in South America and has been used as a nutritional food for people who are recuperating from illness. It was used routinely in the past as a beneficial ingredient in teething biscuits. An online search will reveal many of the amazing properties of arrowroot. Bob's Red Mill sells the true arrowroot i.e. maranta arundinacea
This is not the easiest thing to find locally. (I have to drive 20 minutes to the nearest store that sells it) so seeing it here and being able to have it delivered was great!
It came well packed, all bags were sealed and there was zero residue on the outside of the package. (I had 4 bags...should last me a while)

This is a great substitute for corn starch and is better for you than our corn starch made from dented corn. You should see the documentary "King Corn". Read morePublished on February 19, 2014 by M. Byrd
I like Arrowroot better than corn starch as it thickens gravy and holds up better. It is an excellent fresh product, shipped quickly and well packed. Read morePublished on February 3, 2014 by Grangie
