Not "semolina"? I sometimes eat semolina porridge for breakfast (with
golden syrup and butter, mmm), and I know at least one other person
who also does. Semolina is coarsely ground wheat, and I think sago is
made from the pith of a palm tree. I don't think I've ever even seen
sago; I used to think it was the same as tapioca.

Come to think of it, "grits" may be the American word for "semolina"
for all I know.
