Such starches are not produced in the United States but are imported. Tapioca, from cassava roots, constitutes about 86% of them and is particularly valued in the food and adhesive industries. Sago from the pith of palm trees and cycads is used primarily as an adhesive; arrowroot from a rhizome as a food starch.
