Rice, Rice Wine, And Rice Vinegar

  • Ole G. Mouritsen


Rice is probably the single most important source of human nutrition. For more than half of the world’s people, rice is their staple. There are several thousand varieties of rice, which are roughly divided into three groups: those with short, long, and medium length grains. In Japanese cuisine, and especially in the preparation of sushi, only short-grained rice is used. Rice wine (sake) and rice vinegar (su) are other important products made from rice.
