The rice is very carefully grown, harvested and then extensively polished.
The quality of Yuki Tsubaki Rice can be seen immediately on opening the bag. The grains are uniform, beautifully polished and unbroken. With cooking, the grains maintain a soft fluffy texture and the flavour is clean and fresh.
