Needing a corn starch replacement being used as not a thickener but for lowering moisture content, any suggestions?

I use corn starch to keep marshmallows dry but I need a replacement, can't be potato either. Help!

For marshmallows, I've tried arrowroot powder, cocoa powder (personal favorite), and ...oh, what's that other starch? Susan's got it, tapioca starch. In a pinch I tried rice flower, and it worked okay. Icing sugar also works, but makes the dish sweeter.
