Kokuho Rose® Brown (20 lbs)
  • Grown in USA
  • GlutenFree

Our personal favourite brown rice, Kokuho Rose® Brown is ideal if you are making the transition to brown rice. This premium rice is slightly sweet and does a good job of masking brown rice’s very bran-forward texture and taste. People think of brown rice as hard and chewy, but Kokuho Rose® is soft and sticky. Give it to your kids — they’ll eat it!

This premium “unpolished” Kokuho Rose® — the bran is left intact — is grown exclusively on Koda Farms. Kokuho Rose® Brown rice possesses a rich nutty flavour due to the presence of bran. Slightly chewy in texture, it is high in vitamins and minerals. The industry standard is 4% broken kernels. Kokuho Rose® Brown rice averages less, making this a true sacred treasure to the rice connoisseur.

Inspired by the legend of “Three Sacred Treasures”, Keisaburo Koda created the Kokuho Rose® logo to honour his family. Mythological inspiration starts with the eight-sided mirror symbolizing self-reflection. This mirror shows one the true nature of the soul. Placed at the base of this mirror is a heavenly sword. With strength and sharpness the bearer of this sword is able to act with knowledge and swift decision. The spiritual jewels of gentleness and amiability are placed next to the sword, as the logo is finished off with the Kanji characters of Kokuho, or “Treasure of the Country”. More importantly for you, these characters mean the bag is filled with rice “of the utmost quality”.
