Food manufacturers value arrowroot powder for its natural origins and versatile functionality, often using it in natural or clean-label products.

Arrowroot powder is derived from the rhizomes of the arrowroot plant and is often utilized as a natural ingredient in food formulations. It is prized for its ability to thicken sauces, gravies, puddings, and jellies without making them cloudy. It creates a smooth, shiny consistency, unlike cornstarch which can often leave a cloudy finish.

It is effective in forming a gel at lower temperatures compared to other thickeners, making it suitable for foods that shouldn’t be subjected to high heat. Whereas some thickeners break down when frozen and then thawed, arrowroot maintains its consistency, making it ideal for products that undergo freeze-thaw cycles.

Arrowroot powder’s subtle flavor ensures it doesn’t interfere with the original taste of dishes, making it versatile across different product types.
