Delivery to UK and USA* only
£6.75

Short rice grains packed with nourishing, glutinous qualities.

Combining the stickiness of white rice with the nutty goodness of brown rice, this sweet brown rice offers a uniquely creamy chewiness that's perfect for sushi rice, risotto and even rice-based desserts. Thicker in consistency than regular rice, these short, plump grains lose their shape when cooked, yet form a glutinous texture that's easy to wrap into sushi or mix with other ingredients. A healthier way to bulk up rice puddings and soups, this sweet rice grain is also a superb alternative to oats when making a wholesome morning breakfast bowl. Produced in the US.

Background

As the interest in Japanese cuisine has grown worldwide, so too has the demand for Japanese, or Japonica, rices. These rices are small to medium in grain size and become particularly sticky when cooked, making them ideal for eating out of side bowls with chopsticks, or for pressing into moulded sushi and onigiri rice ball shapes. Take a look at Japan Centre's Rice section for a fantastic variety of Japonica rice, grown in Japan and around the world.
