It’s easy to see why Japanese shortgrain rice are a hot favourite among diners from all over the world. Boasting an impressive list of qualities including a sweet, nutty taste and a slightly sticky texture when cooked, the rice grains are so tasty and delicious that they can be savoured as a meal in itself.
But with so many brands of Japanese shortgrain rice available in local supermarkets, picking one for your own home cooking can prove to be quite a challenging task.
However, if the criteria for your ideal grains include excellent flavours, naturally grown, and value-for-money, you will definitely be hard-pressed to find a better choice than Okome Shortgrain Rice.
A product of California in the United States, Okome Shortgrain Rice are often used to prepare Japanese, Korean and even Taiwanese cuisine, especially sushi, as the grains are known to hold flavours well after cooking. Thanks to its mild flavour profile, it also complements a wide array of main courses and light meals.
The temperate climate of California – which is very similar to East Asia where the closest relatives to the japonica rice originated over 5,000 years ago – coupled with the brand’s meticulous attention to every step in the cropping cycle and milling, ensures a product that is unmatched, and of unexceptional quality.
Other factors that can be attributed to the exceptional quality of Okome Shortgrain Rice include the nutrient-rich heavy clay soils where the grains are grown, and the pristine water supply from the surrounding mountains – these provide an ideal environment to produce quality grains.
