Our organic white sushi rice is a dedicated sticky rice especially grown for making sushi. You will get optimal sushi results with this rice which when cooked is soft and sticky and keeps its shape. It has more taste the more you chew, and also has a sweetness to it.

 

What Type of Rice is Sushi Rice?

  • Long-grain rice, such as Basmati or Jasmine tends to have a dry fluffy texture and the grains don’t stick together thanks to a high ratio of Amylose to Amylopectin. This also causes long-grain rice to get hard as it cools. Short grain rice, on the other hand, has a higher ratio of Amylopectin to Amylose. This not only makes the rice sticky, but it also helps keep the rice soft, even after cooling.
  • There are many different kinds of short and medium grain rice, but if you’re planning on making sushi, getting a dedicated sushi rice will help you get a better outcome at making good sushi.
  • Our organic medium grain sushi rice is the only recommended sushi rice we carry. Using our short grain Arborio rice for sushi will not give good results as starch structures at the core of an Arborio grain deform, making for a firm, toothy center when cooked. While this trait is great for risotto as it gives the dish its signature al dente texture it’s less than ideal for sushi.

 

What is the difference between brown, red, black and white rice?

  • Brown, red and black rice are whole grain rice. That means they contain all parts of the grain, including the fibrous bran, the nutritious germ and the carb-rich endosperm.
  • White rice, on the other hand, has had the bran and germ removed, which are the most nutritious parts of the grain.
