    Default Are arrowroot powder and flour the same thing?

    I am wanting to try a recipe I found online for homemade deodorant. It calls for arrowroot powder. That stuff is expensive unless I order it online but then I would have to pay shipping. Can I use arrowroot flour instead or are they different?

    I found arrowroot powder at my grocery store in the spice rack area and it was not expensive at all. You can use it for cooking and it acts as a thickening agent. I can't say it's the same as flour but try your grocery store.
    Can you share the deodorant recipe?

    It's the same. You can sub cornstarch or potato starch if tolerated. Of the three, we can only eat arrowroot!
