Glutinous rice (non-related to gluten and safe for most people with gluten sensitivity) also known as sticky rice is steamed, then mashed and extruded. Customarily, the Japanese pound the steamed rice with wooden mallets in large wooden mortars. In contrast, we make Mochi using machines that grind and mash the steamed rice to create the same traditional Mochi enjoyed in the Orient since ancient times.
After the soft Mochi comes out of the machine, it is flattened and allowed time 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.
Grainaissance Mochi (pronounced Mo-chee) is a traditional Japanese food that we’ve adapted into a healthy and wholesome treat. Our Mochi is made entirely from 100% organic whole grain brown rice. It’s all-natural without any additives, preservatives or colorings.
Our delicious Mochi is easy & fun to prepare! Eat Mochi plain; or dipped, topped, and stuffed with your favorite sauces or spreads. Mochi can be baked, grilled or pan-fried. You can add it to soups or entrees as a healthy gluten-free bread substitute, or as a creatively prepared hors d’oeuvre. Makes a great waffle too!
