Savory & Tasty, Premium Korean Rice
[King Yeoju] Premium Yeoju Rice - 4kg Bag
Today, we introduce the rice brand that we eat and regularly recommend to others here in Korea!
It’s a premium-grade rice strain cultivated in Yeoju.
(Yeoju is the first region in Korea to be specially designated for rice cultivation, research and advancement - the area receives deeps sunshine throughout the year and benefits from natural, nutrient-dense soil).
This rice variety from Yeoju is called Jinmi (진미).
This Jinmi rice strain was developed in 2009 by Korea's Farming Development Association (농촌진흥청) and has since become a mainstay in Korea for people looking for a more premium-grade rice.
You'll notice the difference in quality when the rice is cooked.
Open the rice cooker and you'll notice a shiny gloss gleam across the surface.
The rice itself has a wonderfully chewy and sticky texture. With a savory and slightly sweet flavor. (Did we mention - it's very easy to digest!)
You'll also notice that the individual rice grains retains their shape. They don't turn smush into each other and turn gummy.
This rice is great for everyday Korean meals.
But really shines in rice bowls like bibimbap or deobap (as the rice grains stay firm and hold their shape in heat well).
If you want to switch-out the rice from your local mart and try a premium strain from Korea, we highly recommend this Yeoju-native rice!
This rice is offered in a large 4kg bag (~9lbs).
If you eat Korean (or Asian) food regularly, this will be used up in no time!
Store the rice in a cool, dry area of your pantry. For longer keeping, place into a container and store in refrigerator.

Carrying on Yeoju's Tradition of Growing Premium Rice...

What makes Yeoju special?
Yeoju has a local climate that represents Korea's climate - mellow sunlight with distinct seasons (ideal for growing rice).
The Paldang waters of Yeosu - where the rice is grown - is an officially protected zone for rice farming.
There, the soil contains a high organic content % - yielding nutrient-dense rice.
As such, Yeoju has become the first region in Korea to be designated for rice harvesting & research.
