Maranta arundinacea (species) (Maranta (genus), Marantaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of herbaceous perennial, probably a native of Guyana and western Brazil, cultivated throughout the West Indies, Southeast Asia, Australia, and South Africa. Its creeping rootstock has fleshy tubers harvested as starch; its many-branched stem reaches 1.5 m (5-6 feet) in height. Plants are harvested when the tubers are gorged with starch, just before the plant's dormant season. The roots are peeled and then grated in water. The resulting mixture is dried to a powder and purified by several washings.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Kruidachtige overblijvende plant, waarschijnlijk inheems in Guyana en West-Brazilië. Men verbouwt de plant in West-Indië, Zuidoost-Azië, Australië en Zuid-Afrika. De kruipende wortelstok heeft vlezige knollen die men oogst om hun zetmeel. De stengel heeft vele takken en wordt 1,5 meter hoog. De planten worden geoogst wanneer de knollen vol zitten met zetmeel, vlak voor het ruststadium van de planten. De wortels worden geschild en daarna in water geraspt. Het mengsel dat zo ontstaat wordt gedroogd tot een poeder en gezuiverd door het meerdere malen te wassen.
