• Edible Sago Worm Larvae

Sago worm, the 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 bags contain approximately 4-5 large dehydrated and seasoned sago worms. 10g Net Weight.
