Sago is a powdery starch made from the processed pith found inside the trunks of the Sago Palm Metroxylon sagu. The genus name Metroxylon is derived from Greek and means heartwood, while the species name sagu is from a local name for the food. But, why peoples always confuse it with tapioca pearls which made from tapioca starch. Anyway, they taste quiet same, and you won't recognise it.
