This organic, gluten-free arrowroot powder is the perfect corn starch replacement. You can use it as a thickening agent in all sorts of recipes, from sauces and soups to desserts and baked goods. Unlike corn flour, which has a distinctive taste, Good Life’s arrowroot powder is completely tasteless; plus it cooks to a clear finish, so it will be unnoticeable while still being effective. This is a plant-based, gluten-free powder that can also be used to replace ordinary flour when baking – mixed with olive oil and water, Good Life Arrowroot can even be used as an egg replacement.

A very good gluten-free alternative to Maizena/cornflour. I use it in the same way (mix into a paste with a tiny bit of water, then add to stews/gravy to thicken them
17/04/2020, By Larvan
I love this arrowroot powder. I use it for making my own dry shampoo (mix in some cocoa powder for darker hair) as well as for thickening soups and stews. Works well for both.

Didn't know how useful arrowroot powder is until I did some research. There should be an option for larger quantities.
27/02/2020, By Liesl
I use a tiny bit instead of translucent powder in the mornings. A little goes a very long way and keeps skin matte for the whole day.

Glad to have a healthier substitute for GMO maizena. I use it to thicken sauces and make a really yummy gluten free coconut flour pie crust.
08/04/2019, By Kein
I purchased arrowroot to replace the cornstarch in my diy makeup after reading up on its astounding antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and its vast uses, from cosmetics to skin, hair and healthcare, to an array of gluten free edible delights. After but a week, my skin really does feel soft, smooth and unbelievably soothed, and I am a complete convert of this as a culinary substitute too. Highly recommended ♥

Even better "than sliced bread" is finding this product.

Makes a great substitute for talc though a bit pricey.
01/12/2017, By Sheena
Much better for delicate sauces that flour or maizena overpower. Works in place of cream although your sauce won't have the creamy taste, they will have the creamy texture. We prefer using cream and lots of it however we have friends who are weight conscious and it is great to let them know that they're safe to eat our food.
30/10/2017, By Sarah
I it’s good, but too smallI wish the package is a little bigger.
05/08/2017, By Lor
Used this for my natural deodorant. Its nice and smooth and amazing for my underarms!
22/06/2017, By Larissa
Good substitute for Maizena. Doesn't have that "floury" taste that cornflour sometimes has.
04/11/2016, By Nissa
Great for natural deodorant. Prefer it to bicarb on the skin.
30/09/2015, By Michelle
This works wonderfully in place of cornflour. Thickens stews and curries with no discernible taste. Have used it constantly since I bought it.
29/09/2015, By raeesa
Not many people know that in some cultures arrowroot is used to make porridge, especially when weaning breastfed babies. To do this, express breast milk and add arrowroot powder when its cold. Stir constantly over low heat until it thickens to a custard texture and serve when its a at an appropriate temperature. I use about 1tsp per 20ml milk. My baby loves it because it tastes exactly like his milk.
03/09/2015, By Thavashni
Bought this particularly for use in soups and stews. It works very well, it thickens to exactly the correct consistency and does not distort the taste and flavour of the stew.
