Selenio Short Grain Rice

Producer: Cascina Oschiena Origin: Piedmont, Italy

Selenio (coloquially meaning “soft soul” in Italian) is one of the oldest small round variety of rice grown in Italy. It has a crystalline grain with no pearl. Selenio’s lower amylose content makes it sticky, so it is perfect for arancini, sushi, fusion dishes, puddings, and other desserts. It also has a lower glycemic index compared to other rices, making it more digestible and favored by those watching their glucose levels. Selenio’s health benefits, organoleptic properties, and versatility in the kitchen makes it a great choice as a general sticky rice. Cascina Oschiena plants nitrogen-fixing cover crops after Selenio’s growing cycle in a practice of crop rotation, which improves soil health.
