arrowroot

« Back to Glossary Index

starch thickener with a neutral flavour, used in sauces and fillings. Extracted from a tropical tuber type plant. Goods made with arrowroot can be frozen and thawed without any negative effects. It is not a good thickener for dairy-based sauces as it turns them slimy. Gives a shiny gloss to cooked products but may make them look artificial.
