To produce pure powdered Arrowroot, it must first get washed and then cleaned of the paper-like scales. The scales need to get removed before extracting the starch to prevent a disagreeable flavor. After the paper-like scales get removed, the roots get cleaned again, drained, and then reduced to a pulp by beating them in mortars or subjecting them to the action of a wheel rasp. The milky liquid then gets passed through a coarse cloth or hair sieve to produce the Arrowroot pure power.
Arrowroot flour is a nutritious substitute for cornstarch because it acts similarly to cornstarch but contains more dietary fiber. Arrowroot flour also contains more calcium than cornstarch.
Of course, adding healthy fruits to your daily diet is wise. However, eating organic fruits is smarter. Why? No chemicals. Eating foods with minimal chemicals helps prevent early illness.
