What is…Sago?

Sago is a starch extracted from the pith inside stems of the sago palm Metroxylon sagu.

Sago looks like many other starches, and both sago and tapioca are produced commercially in the form of “pearls”. These two kinds of pearls are similar in appearance and may be used interchangeably in some dishes. This similarity causes some confusion in the names of dishes made with the pearls.
