This rice has a lower amylase content, so the rice becomes stickier, more chewy and delicious. It gets its name from being translucent, thus Milky Queen. This name is also synonymous with the beautiful skin tone of Japanese women or "mochi-hada" or "skin like mochi." Unlike other rice, the grains of the Milky Queen are translucent before they are cooked and are beautiful just to look at.
What makes this rice so special is that you can still enjoy its softness and fluffiness even after it has cooled down. The fluffy, sticky texture and irresistible aroma combine to make this a uniquely outstanding new variety of rice!
