Abstract: A lot of interest is currently being focused on the possibilities of exploring the less familiar plant resources existing in the wild. Caryota urens Linn. is a semi-wild species traditionally managed and used in native dishes, often a principal food for tribals during lean season in many parts of South India. Sago obtained from this palm has greater potential for exploitation in starch based food industry. An easy and viable method of purification of sago for removal of colour and astringency goes a long way in its maximum utilization in food industry. Tropical countries should consider taking advantage of the unique properties of sago in the development of cost effective and quality rich products.
