I did a post recently in regards to replacing Tapioca Flour in gluten free Flour mixes.
I got some nice suggestions that I could replace it with Arrowroot.

Question:
I have been calling around to different Health Food Stores looking for Arrowroot only one place so far said they have Arrowroot Starch. Are the Flour and Starch the same thing or can be used in the same way?

I live in a smaller town so I have been calling places in town and within 1-2 hours away.
The places I called seemed like they didn't know what Arrowroot Flour was they said oh yeah we carry Arrowhead brand Flour.
Where do you buy Arrowroot Flour or Starch from? Is online the best bet?

*I have been looking online for replacement/substitution flour of Tapioca Flour/Starch but have had no luck.
Any suggestions on a different Flour I could use?
Or for those who cannot have Tapioca Flour what do you replace it with when you make cookies and different foods that call for it?

Thank you very much :)

I get mine from Asian markets.If there's not one locally, an online Asian foods supplier will still be much less expensive. That's where I get all of my rice flours (sweet, brown and roasted as well as regular rice flour) and potato starch.

Thank you so much for your post.

Silly question but -- When you buy flour at an Asian Market can you still read the ingredients to make sure nothing gluten has been added to it?
What brand names (if I can ask) are good online names to buy Arrowroot Flour?

Thanks
