Canned Sago Worms.

Sago worm, Larvae of Rhynchophorus Ferrugineus, is considered a delicacy in much of Southeast Asia. "Sago Delight”, or "Fried Sago Worms" are considered a specialty in Malaysia, although versions of this dish can be found in many Southeast Asian countries and Papua New Guinea, where it is regarded as a delicacy. Sago grubs have been described as creamy tasting when raw, and like bacon or meat when cooked. They are often prepared with sago flour. In New Guinea, sago worms are roasted on a spit to celebrate special occasions. They are eaten either raw or roasted, and are regarded as a special high-nutrient meal among most Sarawak tribes such as the Melanau and the Dayak. The Asmat, Korowai and Kombai peoples of southern New Guinea also hold the larva in high regard as a food source.

Our sago worms are raised on farms, they are fed on blended palm tree trunks. We buy the sago worms fresh at source; they are cleaned, boiled and then dehydrated to lock in nutrients. Following the dehydration process we season them with salt and pack them in cans with moisture and oxygen absorbers. This keeps them fresh for 1 year or longer.

A single can contains 20 grams of dried sago worm. Individual worms weigh approximately 2 grams each after dehydration therefore one can will contain approximately 10 worms.
