Description
Made from 100% premium “Mochihikari" rice cultivated in Nagano Prefecture, this is a special rice cake known as “kirimochi”; a hard, dried variation of one of Japan’s most popular foods. Unlike most mochi varieties, kirimochi needs to be heated up in the microwave or cooked before it can be eaten. The result is an exceptionally soft, rich and gooey rice cake that’s highly versatile and packed with flavor. What makes these rice cakes unique is the fact that they’re made from germ rice. Many people love brown rice for its health benefits. It’s packed with nutrients, high in fiber, and digests slower than traditional white rice, leading to less blood sugar spikes and an overall better feeling of satiety. But while it’s undoubtedly healthier, for many people, the taste and texture leaves a lot to be desired. Germ rice offers the best of both worlds; it’s a special kind of rice that’s been polished to keep the “germ” of intact (hence the name). By cultivating it in this way, the nutritional integrity of the plant is preserved, giving you all the benefits of brown rice. But because the bran of the plant has been shaved down, you get none of the coarseness and all of the smoothness of white rice. These rice cakes are individually wrapped and easy to eat. They’re made with no additives and can be easily divided by hand. With a gorgeous aroma and delicate sweetness, their signature lingering taste makes these cakes a seriously addictive treat. They’re also extremely convenient and easy to use. Preparing these cakes is an incredibly simple process; simply soak them in a bowl of water and microwave at 600 watts for 1 minute to make a soft rice cake. And if you’re looking for a more savory taste, try cooking them in a toaster or frying pan for a slightly different take.
