“Uraro is made from arrowroot flour, a kind of starch powder obtained from the root of a West Indian plant (Maranta arundinacea) that is also widely cultivated in the Philippines. Arrowroot has a very low gluten content that’s why arrowroot cookies are delicate and powdery.” source: lagunatravelguide.com
