I have a recipe that calls for Sago.
What could I substitute?

    you can use instant tapioca or tapioca starch as a substitute for sago.

      Tapioca comes in the same forms as sago and is quite similar: starch, pearls, mini-pearls...

      If I had a recipe that called for Sago, i would put it to one side.

      I was beaten at school for not eating my tapioca pudding,

      and no, proff my retching was not faked.
