    I've been investigating arrowroot for a while, and this may be the best advice i found for using it (at 6:30):

    Arrowroot  like cornstarch must be dissolved in cool water and made into a slurry before adding to  almost all boiling liquids.

    Arrowroot/Xanthan gum/Cornstarch all bind to flavor molecules within the sauce, thickening the final product. I don't use them because they dull the flavor of anything thickened with it.

    When it binds to these molecules, it mutes the flavor and leaves it tasting boring and bland.
