Super Premium Sushi Rice by Tamanishiki
Tamanishiki premium grade short grain rice is rich with a natural sweetness and the classic, sticky texture that’s required for making perfect sushi. The rice is grown at Montna Farms, one of the worlds leading suppliers of premium Japanese rice in California.
Tamanishiki is a hybrid strain of japonica – Asian short grain – rice, and is a cross between Koshihikari rice ('the' rice of choice in Japan) and Yumegokochi rice. Super premium tamanishiki rice is a very popular choice for Japanese people living outside of their native country.
Tamanishiki is characterised by very short, plump, almost round rice grains that have virtually no white marks on them. This demonstrates that the rice has been carefully polished at the mill to remove most of the starch. The net result is a light fluffy texture with a slight bite. This 5kg bag is ideal for making lots of great sushi, or when you want the simple pleasure of high grade quality rice.
