Grainaissance Mochi (pronounced Mo-chee) is a nutritious bake-and-serve rice snack made from whole grain brown rice. Mochi is all-natural and without additives, preservatives or colorings. It's also wheat-free and gluten-free. Mochi can be eaten in a variety of ways.
Just cut into 1-1/2" squares and bake in a pre-heated 450° F oven for 8-10 minutes. Watch them puff up before your eyes. When done, they're brown and crispy on the outside with a chewy interior.
Eat Mochi puffs plain, or with dips or fillings of your own choosing. Mochi can be baked, pan-fried or added to soups just before serving. Mochi makes great waffles too! With Grainaissance Mochi, you're only bound to the limits of your culinary imagination. Healthy eating has now become as easy as....bake, serve & enjoy!

Mochi comes in 6 Delicious Flavors:
Glutinous brown rice is steamed and then mashed and extruded. Customarily, the Japanese pound the steamed rice with wooden mallets in large wooden mortars. We make Mochi using Mochi machines that grind and mash the steamed rice to create the same traditional Mochi enjoyed in the Orient since ancient times. (By the way, glutenous rice is also known as sweet rice, and it is safe for most people with gluten sensitivity.)
After the soft Mochi comes out of the machine, it is flattened and allowed to cure. Mochi gradually hardens but becomes soft and edible again when you take it home and bake it. It is said that Japanese farmers eat Mochi on cold winter days to increase their stamina. When you eat Mochi you too may feel this energy compressed into our chewy treat.
