DD: Yes, you are! Well, what they sell as arrowroot fodder isnít always necessarily from the true arrowroot, Latin name: Maranta arundinacea. AB: Ah. Easy for you to say. DD: Itís often actually tapioca or cassava or even potato starch thatís sold as arrowroot starch, so you have to be sure that you have a reliable source.

Nice one, Vicki. Thanks. I'm a great fan of arrowroot. Use it instead of cornflour in Chinese cooking....in fact the Chinese chefs prefer it to cornflour as a thickener (which is a western substitute that you now see in all the cook books on Chinese cuisine. It just sort of took over...)
