Kudzu Powder

Hi,

I came across a nice looking recipe, but it calls for Kudzu Powder. I checked my local Bulk Barn, but they don't seem to stock it.

Is there anywhere in Toronto (preferably north of, Richmond Hill/Vaughan) that stocks this? Any ballpark as to the cost?

OR-- are there any substitutes for this ingredient?

Thanks!

    I have no idea as to the cost, but check out asian markets or health food stores.
    They should have it.

      Hadn't thought of the asian places. I'll stop at the one I got to outside Vaughan Mills. They have a nice selection there, including Jicamas!

        I think that's the same as or very similar to arrowroot powder you'll find in any Chinese supermarkets.

        If not you can always try Japanese supermarkets like Jtown or Ozawa on East Beaver Creek.
