GUSTA SUPPLIES "Warabi ko" Bracken Fern Starch

Gusta Supplies

$12.50

Warabiko (わらび粉) refers the starch of the root of the “warabi” plant in Japan.  While warabi is a type of edible fiddlehead greens, its root starch gives a mild sweetness and when cooked with water, provides a transparent, lightly crunchy yet yielding gel texture that is quite unique.

The rare “hon-warabi-ko” (true warabi starch powder) refers to the starch coming from 100% warabi roots, which are now scarce.  The popular Japanese confectionery warabi mochi is mostly made with a blended starch that may or may not contain hon-warabiko.  Only the higher quality blend would contain some hon-warabi-ko for the authenticity in taste and texture.

Ingredients: lotus root starch, true warabi starch, processed starch
