At that point, these sago logs will be integrated as pontoons and pulled by water crafts to sago preparing plant through waterway. Now and then, these sago logs are conveyed by lorry to sago preparing plant. Preparing Sago Starch Preparing of sago starch is done in the sago handling plant. In the sago extraction process, the sago logs are first debarked, trailed by maceration utilizing a rasper. More current sorts of raspers have dispensed with the requirement for debarking. The sago chips coming about because of the maceration procedure are then additionally broke down utilizing a mallet process. The starch slurry is then gone through a progression of radiating sifters to evacuate the coarse strands. Violent wind separators are then used to extricate the starch which is then dried utilizing a turning vacuum drum drier, trailed by tourist drying. 1.4 Malaysia Market for Sago Source: Department of Agriculture, Sarawak.
