Arrowroot Powder

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.
