Zheng Feng Tapioca / Sago 300g
Sago is a starch that is extracted from the pith, or spongy center, of a variety of tropical palm plants, including the sago palm. It is then processed into either flour, meal, or pearl sago (this form is similar to tapioca).
How to use
Sago is used in a few different ways, including as a thickener, for baking, and in desserts such as puddings. The preparation can range from forming it into a pancake, making into a glue-like paste, or forming the starch into balls. Commercially, it is most often made into pearls. The pearls are boiled until they are translucent and then are sweetened with milk and sugar. Cinnamon is the spice flavouring of choice but cardamom works great, too; and it goes well with various toppings. The bubbles at the bottom of the bowl or cup make for a delightful surprise as they slide down your throat.
