Sunwhite® White Medium-Grain Calrose Rice

Sunwhite® White Medium-Grain Calrose Rice

Sunwhite® Calrose Rice is an oval medium-grain white rice known for its quality and taste. When cooked, Calrose rice becomes soft and tender with a tendency to stick together due to its succulent grains, allowing it to retain its moisture. Sunwhite® Calrose Rice is used in dishes that require a bit more creaminess as well as a side dish to compliment almost every meal. Its versatility means that it can be used in everything from starters and soups to desserts. For best results, rinse this rice with cold water. Drain well before cooking. All rice is naturally gluten-free. 4kg and 9kg packages are available in Jordan only.
