Additional Information:
Clearspring’s Organic Sushi Rice is ideal for creating delicious, perfectly cooked rice that can be used in Japan’s most celebrated dish, sushi. The short grain Selenio rice variety has characteristics very similar to the Japonica rice that is used to make sushi in Japan. It is organically grown in the Piemonte region of northwest Italy, an area also renowned for the cultivation of risotto rice.

Once ripened, the rice is then polished to perfection by a rice miller located in the nearby town of Trino. When only the outer most layer of a grain of rice is removed (the husk) brown rice is produced. To produce white rice, the next layers underneath the husk (the bran and the germ layer) are removed leaving mostly the starchy endosperm.

Storage Advice:
Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

Most types of uncooked rice have an indefinite shelf life. The main challenge is keeping it free of dust, insects and other contaminants. White, wild, Arborio, jasmine and basmati rice all have an indefinite shelf life when kept free from contaminants. The exception is brown rice — thanks to its higher oil content, it won’t keep nearly as long, usually up to 6 months in the pantry and up to 2 years if frozen.

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
  • Suitable for home freezing.
