It was named 'The World’s Most Expensive Rice’ in 2016 by The Guinness World Records and valued at a whopping US$109 per kg. Now available in Singapore, the Kinmemai Premium artisanal rice is blended from five rice varieties sourced across Japan and flavour-aged for six months. During milling, a rigorous rice processing technology is applied to seal in the nutrients while removing the indigestible wax and husk layers. The result is a delicious, slightly buttery texture. There is no need to rinse the rice. For best results, simply soak for one hour before cooking.
