[King's Seal]聽Royal Grade聽Icheon Rice聽- 4kg

Today, we introduce a royal grade rice cultivated in Icheon.

Icheon 鞚挫矞 (not to be confused with Incheon 鞚胳矞) is famous for producing the best rice in Korea.

In fact, Icheon rice is so good that it was used to serve the Kings of Korea during the Dynasty Days.

What makes Icheon rice taste so good?

The region's climate and geography make it聽ideal for rice cultivation.

Icheon receives large amounts of sunshine throughout the year, while also benefiting from a cooler temperature than other聽areas.

The soil in Icheon is also nutrient dense, with a high amount of natural minerals.

Farmers in Icheon also water their crops with mineral water extracted from deep underground. This natural water (as opposed to municipal water) contains聽higher amounts of Mg, which makes for a better-tasting rice.

Among聽Icheon rice brands, King鈥檚 Seal is the most reputable!

Today, we offer their signature short-grain, white rice in 4kg bags.

The rice grains are are extra clean, with a transparent and glossy color. They have no cracks and have a uniform, short oval shape - all features of a high-quality rice.

In fact, this rice received a grade of 鈥滍姽鈥 - which is Korea's聽highest-quality聽mark for rice.

[The grade for rice聽starts from the highest 鈥滍姽鈥 (special/royal) to 鈥滌儊鈥 (premium) to 鈥滊炒韱碘 (normal).]

When cooked, this special rice has just the right amount of softness, chewiness and glutinous (sticky) texture - it's simply perfect for everyday Korean meals!

Tip: Use this white rice as a base, then add-in a small handful of brown rice, black rice, black beans or sorghum for more nutrition!

Note: For long-term storage, we recommend transferring the rice to a large kitchen container and storing it in the refrigerator (prevents the rice from losing moisture).
