Arrowroot powder is a starchy substance that’s extracted
from the root of a tropical plant known as Maranta arundinacea.
Arrowroot tubers contain about 23% starch. They are first washed, and
then cleaned of the paper-like scale. After
removing the scale, the roots are washed again, drained and finally
reduced to a pulp by beating them in mortars or subjecting them to the
action of a wheel rasp. The milky liquid
pulp is then forced through a screen to obtain only the fine starch.
The wet starch is dried in the sun
or in a drying house.The result is a powder, the "arrowroot" of
commerce, that is quickly packed for market in air-tight cans, packages
