Valencia rice takes its name from Valencia, a province of Spain. The city of Valencia is a prominent seaport famous for its seafood, and especially its Paella Valenciana. Valencia rice is also known as short grain rice, pearl rice, or occasionally as round rice.

Mahatma Valencia rice cooks up tender and moist, tending to cling together due to its high starch content. It is used for traditional Spanish dishes like Paella and Arroz con Pollo (chicken and rice) as well as soups, stews, stuffings, rice molds, croquettes, sushi, rice pudding, and other desserts. Mahatma Valencia may also be substituted in risotto recipes calling for imported Arborio rice. 

Mahatma Valencia rice is Kosher approved and is naturally sodium free, cholesterol free, and fat free.

Mahatma Valencia rice is only available in Florida. It's easy to prepare, economical, versatile, and a healthy complement to any meal.
