What is Genmai?
Genmai (玄米) refers to Japanese unpolished brown rice. Because it is not refined, it contains more vitamins and nutrients than white rice.
The Genmai (brown rice) we use at Obubu is a type of “Mochi-gome”, a rice used to make Japanese Mochi rice cakes.
It is steamed without being refined and then roasted, which makes it a very crunchy and flavorful.
