Shinmei Toyama Milky Queen Rice, 2 Kg
For absolutely fluffy rice that melts in the mouth with fine flavour.
When you're looking for a sweet and sticky rice that's ideal for making several of your favourite Japanese dishes, Milky Queen rice sits at the throne of your staple grain needs. Cultivated among the complex network of floodplains at the foot of Toyama prefecture's mountain range, the soil remains rich and high and moisture allowing the regular Koshihikari rice they grow to develop a looser starch that creates this extra glutinous, extra rich crop of rice. Keeping its mouth-watering stickiness even when cooled after cooking, this rice gently shines in a translucent creamy look, giving it the curious Milky Queen name that backs its soft and expanding texture, spreading the sweetness around for the perfect fulfilling mouthful. An ideal rice for bento and onigiri or wonderful as a side dish to some flavoursome cuts of meat and fish, make every meal flourish with this fluffy rice.
