A Japanese dish, sushi consists of cold rice to which vinegar has been added and that is garnished with seafood, vegetables, or other ingredients. As rice is the central component of sushi, proper preparation is essential. It should be fluffy but firm. Moreover, the right variety of rice should be used to achieve the proper texture.

Traditionally, a Japanese short-grain white rice has been the ideal choice for sushi. Varieties of this kind include Uruchimai, a sticky rice that is ideal for chopsticks, and Mochigome, whose high gluten content gives it a chewy texture. Developed in 1948, Calrose rice is grown in California and is used to cook Japanese meals in North America. However, strictly speaking, it is not a Japanese rice. Calrose includes the Kokuho Rose and Nishiki varieties, which are known for their good flavor and texture.
