GUSTA SUPPLIES "Warabi-ko" Bracken Fern Starch
Warabiko (わらび粉) is the starch of the “warabi” plant in Japan. It is a type of edible fiddlehead greens. Warabiko is distinctive from other flour for mochi; giving a milder sweetness and transparent lighter, jelly-like texture.
The root is the only part of the plant that is used to extract the rare “hon-warabi-ko” (true warabi starch powder) which is later used to make Japanese confectionary.
