This ample five kilo sack of Calasparra Rice will serve the needs of all rice lovers. This special paella rice is planted in cool mountain water and grows 30% slower than other rice types. This longer growing cycle produces rice kernels that are exceptionally dehydrated - ready to absorb even more of the tasty broth for your paella or other Spanish rice dishes.
Calasparra rice is grown in the mountains of the region of Murcia in Spain, where it enjoys pure mountain water irrigation, unlike the usual rice fields by the ocean. Each bag is individually numbered at the farm. This rice is totally free of all pesticides and herbicides, and in fact no chemicals of any kind are added during processing.
