Cycad/Sosetu

Traditionally regarded as famine food by the Japanese in Okinawa, especially during extreme destitute. The Japanese famine of 1920 is most commonly referred to as “Cycad Hell”. Certain species of Cycad are still used by some native tribes as starch, though even extensive safety efforts to remove toxins can prove ineffective. Properly processed Cycad flour can reportedly keep up to seven years without expiry.
