A high-quality starch made from a tropical tuber of the same name, used for thickening much the same way as cornstarch is used. Arrowroot has virtually no taste and becomes clear when cooked, making it ideal as a thickener for puddings, gravies, and sauces. Less expensive than kuzu, it can be used interchangeably in recipes.
