Arrowroot powder is sought after as a thickening agent for gourmet dishes, and is well known for its use in crystal clear fruit glazes and jellies. Its demulcent and nutritious properties have made it a popular ingredient in babyÍs teething biscuits and in foods prepared for the elderly and those with chronic bowel complaints. Because arrowroot powder thickens at lower temperatures than other vegetable starches, it is far less likely to burn, and it will thicken even in the presence of acidic fruits, making it the thickener of choice for crystal clear fruit glazes.
