Quality Japanese rice with firm Hokkaido rice grains.

Cleverly combined with Shinmei's deliciously soft grain, Hokkaido rice offers a richer source of vitamins and minerals to this short rice blend, ensuring a extra healthy serving of authentic, glutinous rice to savour with Japanese curry, donburi & more. Chewy yet firmer in texture than most regional Japanese rice, this blended 2 Kg bag is perfect for making sushi, complementing the light, salty crunch of nori seaweed, as well as tenderly-sliced sashimi.

Background

Rice is the dietary staple of Japan. Like how many people in Western countries cannot imagine going without bread for very long, the vast majority of Japanese people will eat at least some rice every day. Japanese, or Japonica, rice is grown all over Japan and in other countries, and the accepted wisdom is that the rice will taste different depending on where it is grown. For an incredible range of Japanese rice, take a look at Japan Centre's Rice section.
