This rice is extremely similar to Kokuho Rose® — it’s just a little less sticky and a little less sweet, and a little less in cost. It is, however, the same fatness.

Far superior to other Calroses, Kokuho is grown in the U.S. and produces an extremely consistent quality of seed, unlike those grown in other countries. Known to be fussy about rice, the Japanese owned company Nomura oversees all growers and all the mills, which must follow strict guidelines to ensure it is a high-grade Calrose rice; otherwise, it is deemed not deserving of the special Kokuho name. You could say Kokuho Rose® is the crown jewel in our collection, and Kokuho is the crown.

Glycemic Index

GI stands for Glycemic Index and is a measure of the impact of food on your blood sugar. Foods with a high GI tend to quickly raise your body’s blood sugar levels; by contrast, foods with a low GI will raise them more slowly and over a longer period.

The glycemic index range is as follows:

Low GI = 55 or less
Medium GI = 56–69
High GI = 70 or more


All GI figures are based on studies conducted at the University of Sydney. Consult a dietician for specific healthcare information.
