Rice varieties and where to find them

Fun fact! There are three types of rice: short-grain, medium-grain, and long-grain. Long-grain rice is predominantly used in processed foods such as packaged mixes. Medium-grain rice can be found in breakfast cereals and other processed foods such as casseroles and stir-fry recipes. Short-grain rice is ideal for pudding and other desserts. Short- and medium-grain japonica rice is well known for its use in Japanese and Korean cuisine, including sushi.
