Arrowroot powder (Maranta arundinacea) is a starch derived from the root of the arrowroot plant, which is native to South America. The powder is white and odorless and has a slightly sweet taste. It is commonly used as a thickener for sauces, gravies, and puddings, and can also be used as a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour in baking. It is also easily digested, making it a good option for people with digestive issues. Additionally, arrowroot powder is often used in cosmetics and personal care products as a thickening agent.
