Arrowroot Flour/Starch - from a tuber

Arrowroot Flour, also known as Arrowroot starch, is a basic pantry essential if you’re on the hunt for GM free, gluten-free, paleo-friendly organic baking ingredients. 

This gluten-free flour is gaining in popularity as people search for GM free alternatives to corn starch. It has all the attributes of corn starch, in that it works to thicken foods. When you need a substitute for cornflour or an alternative to xanthum gum, try Arrowroot. It’s also colourless and tasteless, so doesn’t interfere with your tried and loved recipes. In addition to being gluten-free, it’s grain-free, so it’s a versatile ingredient for those on a restricted or paleo diet. 

This festive stone fruit recipe is a stunning gluten-free dessert. It takes a little time to make all the components, but is truly delicious and looks spectacular!
