Tapioca and sago are completely different plants. Sago is probably more toxic in its natural state. Since Sago plants have caused a lot of animal deaths in the U.S.A. this has probably not helped sales.

Cycads may leave small amounts of toxin in the flour, thus supermarkets may be playing safe.

Ambrosia Sago Pudding Not Available

Have searched all Supermarkets looking for Sago Pudding. Loved it and wanted to let my Grandchildren experience what I did as a child. Does this mean that it will never be on sale again? It would be such a shame if this was so.

My mum bought a bag of it from a local international food store a few months ago. But knowing our local international food store, it was probably bagged and on the shelf a couple of years before the tsunami took place.

You can buy packets of tapioca (very similar, almost identical) from most Indian grocers or on libe; and then cook the pudding yourself. Sago/tapioca is cooked in many forms, mostly savoury, by Indians. You will find a couple of recipes here too.

Sago not tapioca

I am having the same trouble here in Australia trying to buy sago. Tapioca is readily available but it is NOT sago. I know they are interchangable but sago is much finer. Many shop assistants here have not heard of it either.

Sago and tapioca may be interchangeable when used in cooking recipes but they are certainly not the same when made into a milk pudding. We often make a sago pudding when in the Faroe Islands, delicious sprinkled with a sugar/cinnamon mix. I shall have to remmember to bring some back this summer.
