Taste of Royal Court, 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 Jinsang (진상).
The Jinsang rice strain was developed in Korea to replicate the rice that the former Korean emperors enjoyed during the Dynasty era.
Its genealogy lies between Meppsal Rice (everyday Korean white rice) and Chappsal Rice (glutinous rice used to make rice cakes and desserts).
Jinsang rice contains less amylose and protein. (Rice with high amylose tends to cook firm and dry).
As a result, when cooked properly, this Jinsang rice looks shiny, almost glossy... with a very smooth, chewing texture!
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.
