This rice was originally developed in 1932 in preparation for food shortages. The original rice is processed by a dehydration process using freeze-drying technology and can be stored for up to 5 years. This rice is used for Japan’s self defence force, by JASA for space expeditions, and is also stored at all Japanese municipal city centres for emergency relief food.
Although it was originally made for times of need, great efforts have been made to ensure that the taste is delicious and can be used in daily life. This is a good product to keep not only stored in your house but also for camping or adventure trips, a quick snack when you don't have time to cook, etc. The mixed rice is carefully made without any of the 27 basic allergens.
Ingredients: Non-glutinous rice (Japan-grown), Japanese plum shiso powder (Table Salt, Starch hydrolysate, Japanese plum paste, Shiso plum vinegar, Kneaded shiso, Red shiso extract), Acidulant, Thickener (Modified starch)
The rice can be made with boiling water(leave for 20 minutes), or room temperature water (leave for 1 hour).

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.
Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
