KOSHIHIKARI produced in Niigata prefecture
Product available in store only : 28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
Most of the Koshihikari rice produced in Niigata Prefecture is called "Niigata Koshihikari BL", and has been improved to resist rice blast. However, this product is one of the few varieties of Koshihikari that farmers have protected for years, and represents only 5% of the rice grown in Niigata Prefecture.
This rice has the characteristic stickiness and sweetness of Koshihikari rice, and is also delicious eaten cold, making it a highly prized rice, despite its rarity.
In addition, the rice is healthy and safe, as it has obtained the "Special Agriculture" certification from Niigata Prefecture.
About Special Agriculture Rice
Rice grown with less than 50% of the number of pesticide uses and less than 50% of the nitrogen content of chemical fertilizers compared to the usual level of agricultural production in the region where it was grown.
Established at the end of the Meiji era in Nagaoka, this centuries-old rice shop focuses on a limited number of regions and producers in special agriculture, as well as the purchase of rigorously selected high-quality rice. In addition, while oxidation of the rice normally begins immediately after polishing, the polishing machine used by the Takadaya shop transfers virtually no heat to the rice during the polishing process, so oxidation progresses relatively slowly, preserving the delicious flavor of the rice until it reaches the consumer.
