    I love the Mckenzie’s range of baking products. They are consistently of a high quality and the packaging is so convenient and easy to use. I use the Gluten Free Arrowroot as a thickening agent and it delivers great results every time.

    It’s hard to find exactly the right type of gluten free product, and you really need to read the fine print on the packet to make sure they are what they say they are. This item works for us.


  • Great thickener for baking and cooking.

    We prefer using this produvt above corn starch as it’s a better option. Cornstarch is a powdery substance made from corn and is used to thicken gravies and sauces. However, since the advent of Genetically Modifier Organisms (GMOs), almost all cornstarch is made from corn that has been genetically engineered. You can buy non-GMO cornstarch but it is usually more expensive. The process of extracting cornstarch can be quite harsh as well, utilizing chemicals and high heat to transform the corn into the powder in the can. Arrowroot Powder (sometimes known as Arrowroot Starch) is white and powdery just like cornstarch. It is derived from a tropical South American plant and, like cornstarch, is used as a thickener in recipes. Arrowroot powder is extracted in a much different manner. After being soaked in hot water, the tubers are peeled to remove their fibrous covering (this prevents a bitter taste and off-color in the final product.) Next they’re cut into small pieces. The cut tubers are then mashed to a pulp and macerated to break down the tough cells surrounding the starch.
    The pulp is washed on screens to separate the starch from the fibrous material. The settled starch is then centrifuged or filtered to further separate it from fiber fines and other soluble material (this process can be repeated to obtain greater purity). The separated starch is finally dried and ground to powder. Reasons for us to us Arrowroot. You can find McKenzie’s Arrowroot powder in most supermarkets.
