Japanese rice for sushi "Yuki no sei" 1kg


9,90 € tax incl.

Description : This rice is especially suitable for sushi. Its white and pure color like snow gave it the name in Japanese of “snow spirit”. Indeed, it is produced in Niigata, a region characterized by cold winters with heavy snowfall. Spring snowmelt irrigates the rice fields, providing all the nutrients needed for rice production.

Instructions : Rinse the rice several times then drain it. Put the rice in the rice cooker and add 1.2 volume of water for 1 volume of dry rice. For cooking in a saucepan, cook with a lid on low heat, turn off the heat 3-5 minutes after the water starts boiling, checking that there is no more water. Otherwise, let it boil a little longer. After cooking, keep warm for 10 minutes with the lid on, then add the sushi vinegar and air it well, mixing the rice gently. Use 150g of dry rice / 2 servings.

Use : Its larger grains and its elasticity are perfect to prepare sushi or risotto.

Ingredients : Rice 100%.

Preservation : Store in a cool, dry place, away from light. 

Origin : Japan

Shelf life : 3 years

Container : plastic sachet

Also available in 300g and in 5kg

First, created in 1995 as an association that brings together local farmers, EcoRice as a company was born in 2002. Originally from Nagaoka, in Niigata prefecture, the company has less than ten employees. Following the Chuetsu earthquake in 2004, the company, that was already producing organic rice, realized that some people with diabetes could not eat their rice. Then, the company decided to change its method of production to obtain an even healthier rice. Concerned about the environment, EcoRice practices sustainable agriculture: rice is replanted after each harvest to nourish the soil. Niigata's ideal climatic conditions and their new packaging technologies make EcoRice’s rice a truly fresh product and one of the best rice in Japan.
