Mochiko sweet rice flour is unique among all varieties of rice flour due to its starch composition of nearly pure amylopectin. This characteristic makes it very viscous and useful as a gluten-free thickening agent. For over 80 years, Koda Farms have been producing mochiko using high quality Californian short grain sweet rice and without additives. This sweet rice flour is mild and neutral in flavor making it a popular choice to make mochi, manju, dango, and arare (rice crackers).
Uses: Use it as a thickener for gluten-free recipes. Sweet rice flour is good for homemade mochi, dango, and wagashi. Try using shiratamako for a more traditional mochi or dango.
