Kudzu Root (Cut & Sifted)

Kudzu, also known as Japanese arrowroot, is a trailing vine native to China, Korea and Japan that produces an oblong-shaped root tuber that resembles the potato. While fresh kudzu root is cooked as a vegetable, the dried root is used to prepare teas, tinctures and tonics. Kudzu root, which has a high concentration of isoflavones, is also processed commercially as a dietary supplement.
