What is the difference between cornstarch and arrowroot?

Arrowroot is starch obtained from a variety of tropical plants, while cornstarch is starch obtained from corn (of course). They are both used as thickening agents in a variety of recipes, and they are somewhat interchangeable.

Similarly, you may ask, what can I use in place of arrowroot flour?

Per 2 teaspoons arrowroot powder needed substitute:
  • 1 tablespoon Quick cooking tapioca.
  • OR 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cornstarch.
  • OR 1 teaspoon Mashed potato flakes.

Is tapioca starch and arrowroot starch the same thing?

Arrowroot starch comes from the Maranta arundinacea plant, which is considered an herb, while tapioca is obtained from the cassava root. They are both gluten-free, so they are popular thickeners for those with gluten sensitivities.
