Twice this week I have used arrowroot powder; it was an ingredient in my natural deodorant and also it was an ingredient in the chocolate sauce for my chia pancakes!
So what is Arrowroot Powder?
Arrowroot powder is a food starch which has been widely used for many different things for thousands of years.
In recipes it is most often used as a thickener and at that it is a great vegan choice. This is why I used it in the chocolate sauce as a thickener.
It also has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties and is one of the easiest starches to take for sensitive digestive systems.
It is a great powder to have in the house and can be added to thicken soups, stews etc.
You can purchase arrowroot powder at health food stores.
