Product Description

Product Description

Bob's Red Mill Arrowroot Starch/Flour is a wonderful grain free, paleo-friendly, gluten free thickener and emulsifier. It comes from the root of the arrowroot plant, a large periennal herb. Use Arrowroot starch one-for-one in place of cornstarch in your recipes. Added to baked goods, it creates a softer, lighter texture. It will not turn your sauce or gravy cloudy. Great for puddings, gravies, pie fillings, and sauces.

About the Brand

Bob Moore's secret to life may just be "work hard and keep it simple." Living this philosophy, Bob literally puts his nose to the grindstone every day. Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods is an Oregon-based company that utilizes simple, old-world technology to mill hundreds of all-natural whole grain products.

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.

Because I have so many MD- and test-diagnosed food allergies, I REALLY have to rely on alternate flours. Arrowroot is a great flour to add to a flour mixture because it has a couple of good properties:

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.

I use arrowroot as a 1 for 1 replacement for cornstarch in my gluten free cooking. It's a perfect replacement as I have diet where there is some sensitivity to corn. I use quite a bit of it each month so going with the Subscribe and Save program is great as shipping is free. From other vendors including Bob's Red Mill the shipping costs can be quite high and add a lot to the total cost of the product.

This is a great alternative to regular flour as a thickening agent. I used it often when I'm making fruit pies to keep the fillings from being "runny" and oozing out of the crust. My pies not only look beautiful, but they don't have that "raw flour" taste you can sometimes get when using an all purpose flour. It's also gluten free so for people who have gluten allergies, it's great for baking and making gravies! Bob's Red Mill Arrowroot Starch Flour, 20-Ounce Packages (Pack of 4)

I have been looking for Arrowroot starch everywhere. If and that is a big IF a local store carries it, it costs about $5 for a tiny bottle the size of a spice bottle. I know how helpful Arrowroot starch can be in cooking so I knew I wanted more and didn't want to pay so much for so little, especially with summer pies and things coming up soon. I almost ordered the McCormick brand it was like $38 for two 20 ounce bottles and is a brand I trust but it wasn't available right away. I'm glad it wasn't now because I bought this instead and couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the product. I use it to thicken everything from soup to fruit cobblers/pies. It's does a wonderful job quickly thickening and stays clear so it doesn't effect the look or taste of your dish. This was a much better price than the McCormick and while it comes well sealed in plastic bags instead of a resealable bottle that's okay with me. It was a heck of a deal, I just opened my first bag and put it in a resealable lock and lock container for storage. I got it earlier this week and have already used it several times. I would not hesitate to order this again or to try any of the other products this company has now that I see the level of quality they produce.

This is a good quality product. Arrowroot has many uses in the kitchen, especially for gluten free cooking and as a thickener for sauces. It also can be used in homemade ice cream to reduce ice crystals and make it creamier.

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

Bob's is a consistently excellent product. This arrowroot flour is no different. We use it for a lot of baking, just this morning we used in a Waffle batter ([...]). These bulk packages and the Amazon price crush anything you can buy at your local grocer. Most grocer's sell arrowroot in small spice jar size bottles for almost the same price as one of these 20 ounce packages comes out to be. Insane! Especially if living the gluten free life where this can be a baking staple.

Since I have to be gluten free, arrowroot starch is excellent for gluten free oatmeal muffins! I can't eat chicken eggs either, so this works really well for holding the muffins together. It works better than tapioca flour in this particular recipe because the muffins turn out moist instead of dry. Arrowroot is also good in other recipes. Can't beat Bob's Red Mill gluten free products!

I just started using this stuff and it's great! I am using it in some of my home made personal care products as well as for cooking. It has no flavor of its own...so its a great thickener.

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)
