What is a Good Gluten-Free Thickener

We normally use tapioca or arrowroot powder to thicken, but found that it was very gummy when used in gravy. For this reason we use cornstarch for this gravy.

Cornstarch Information

We like to make sure we by non-GMO cornstarch! Unlike flour, cornstarch has no real flavor to mask and it has twice the thickening power of flour–so use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch for every 2 tablespoons of flour your recipe calls for! We are providing you with the perfect amount, so no need to worry on that front!
