Approx. 4-5 large sago worms per can
Sago worms (aka sago grubs, sago pupae) are the larvae of a weevil (Rhynchophorus Ferrugineus) and considered a delicacy in Southeast Asia & Papua New Guinea. They have a buttery, creamy flavor and a crispy, sandy texture. They’re a good source of protein (approx. 25%) and contain several essential amino acids.
These sago worms have been harvested wild from bamboo trees in southern Thailand. They exclusively eat the cores of bamboo trees. They are then cleaned, cooked in a pressure cooker, and then dehydrated. They are processed & packaged in a modern, FDA registered facility that is certified by the Thailand Food & Drug Administration.
Insects may be the food of the future. They’re nutritious, easy to farm, and use much fewer resources than conventional sources of protein like beef or soy.
Store sago worms in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
