Arborio Rice, Zaccaria - 1kg
Arborio rice is well suited for making risotto. When compared to other rices that are often used in risotto, such as Carnaroli or Vialone Nano, this short grain rice contains the lowest amount of amylose (a component of starch) which means that the grains will absorb less liquid and produce a desirably firm, creamy and chewy risotto. Arborio can sometimes be sensitive to overcooking, so test it as you get close to the texture you want.
