There seem to be countless uses for arrowroot powder. Many people add this powder to their gluten-free recipes, because, mixed with rice and potato starch flour, it bakes in a consistency similar to wheat flour. Arrowroot powder can also replace regular flour, or cornstarch, for thickening gravies.
This very fine powder can also be added to homemade beauty products, as you would do with cornstarch. Some women mix arrowroot with other natural ingredients, such as cocoa, beetroot powder or cinnamon, to make chemical-free foundation or face powder.
