Sago (Metroxylon Sagu)
A form of palm tree, native to South East Asia.. A starchy and granular material obtained from its pith forms a nutritious food, and is used to manufacture glucose.
In Britain we generally experience sago when it's been mixed with water and formed into small granules - it's in this form school children will see it as sago pudding (commonly known as 'frogspawn').
