Dear fellow aznz. Don't be fooled by the Japanese name. This is not azn short grain. It is not sticky at all.

If you're aZn and want a sticky brown rice variation then grAb a bag of lundgreens brown rice from Costco. It listed as short grain brown rice.

Right. Nishiki is a "brand" that is used to sell American (California) rice. This brown rice is from California as well. In fact, most rice being marketed as "Calrose" and "Sushi" rice in North America is from California. If you want real Japanese rice, you'll going to pay a big premium. Lets be realistic, 99% of the buyers can't taste the difference or care... IMO, the cooking (a really good rice cooker or an experienced stove/pot watcher) and the water (not using hard tap water) makes a bigger impact than the source of the rice...

Are you talking about Lundbergs rice? Here in N California we grow and package rice under many labels (including the Nishiki brand). https://calrice.org/

Love steamed rice with butter, salt and pepper. Or add it to scrambled eggs with a topping of Mexican blend cheese and flavor to taste with your favorite salsa.

trust me.. this nishiki stuff is probably a mix of medium and long grain rice.. so if you're azn you're probably expecting a medium grain or a short grain.. azns dont like the long grain uncle bens stuff.. i have family that refuse to try brown rice in general because of this "sticky" situation.. trust me.. the azns know and care..

I think he's alluding to the fact that it's not a short grain cultivar from Japan. There are Japanese cultivars such as koshihikari grown in California. Calrose is a medium grain japonica cultivar originating in the US.

Not sure why you think people are getting fooled. If a few people are getting "fooled". They probably can't taste / don't care about the difference in any case. Telling people they are getting fooled does nothing other than making them feel bad and confused.

It's a good price for a small pack of respectable rice. Not a great option for families go though a few Costco size bags a year but very good for small households / people who eat brown occasionally. Please provide link if you have a better deal for small packs of brown rice
