Often called sushi rice, koshihikari is a short grain rice produced by the milling of specially cultivated koshihikari paddies. The flavour is slightly sweet and the grain has an off-white colour. Commonly used for making sushi, the texture of this type of rice is soft, and the glycaemic index is relatively low in comparison to other varieties of rice, as Koshihikari rice has a high amount of resistant starch meaning it's broken down slowly in the body raising blood sugar levels slowly.
Buy from supermarkets or Asian grocers. Some health food stores also stock brown koshihikari rice.
Store in an airtight container in the pantry.
