Arrowroot vs. Cornstarch, info please

My boy friend found a large container of Arrowroot powder at the grocery store. Since he knows I love to try cooking things I've never tried before he brought it home.
I know it is a thickener like corn starch but is it better all around or better for different recipes? Does it leave a taste? ETC

Thank You

Cornflour and arrowroot both have their uses. A quick google search better explains...

I've made arrowroot biscuits for the grandbaby... they're great because arrowroot is pretty much allergen free, so completely safe for little ones.
