Sagu Putih / White Sago (300g)
The Tapioca Sago Seed / Tapioca Pearl is a starch or starch food extracted from the pulp inside the stem or trunk of some palm trees. Mainly drawn from the species Metroxylon Sagu. This is the basic food for lowland peoples of New Guinea and the Moluccas, where they call saksak, rage and Sagu.
Sago is extracted from the sago cycad by cutting the pith from the stem, root and seeds of the cycads, grinding the pith to a coarse flour, before being dried, pounded, and soaked. The starchy residue is then dried and cooked, producing a starch similar to palm sago/sabudana.
