Tsuru Mai® is like the brown rice version of Kokuho rice — so don’t let the name confuse you. It comes from the same supplier and is a Calrose grain. Tsuru Mai is a high quality medium grain rice that is not as sticky as sushi rice or as dry and fluffy as long grain varieties. 

This highly nutritious brown rice cooks easily on a stove top or in a rice cooker, and can work well with any meal. It is nice and soft, with a wholesome, chewy nutty texture.

Japanese folklore believes it was the crane that first brought the seed of rice to Japan. It was important for Koda Farms to honour the crane, and thus it is placed it at the centre of the emblem. Even the name Tsuru Mai® has special meaning. Tsuru means “longevity”, and Mai means “rice”. And since the brown rice of Tsuru Mai® is filled with vitamins, minerals, and fibre, by eating Tsuru Mai® you will be aiding your own life with health and longevity.
