Mochikoもち粉 is a type of glutinous rice flour (or sweet rice flour) made from mochigome which is glutinous short-grain Japanese rice. It is sometimes called Gyuhiko 求肥粉 or Daifukuko 大福粉. Known for its sticky and chewy texture, we use mochiko particularly to make Japanese pastry and sweets.
Blue Star® Mochiko Sweet Rice Flour
Blue Star® 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 superior, gluten-free thickening agent. Our flour has been milled on our farm since the 1940s and composed of California farmed, pure, unadulterated short grain sweet rice. No additives of any kind are added. Mild and neutral in flavor, popular Japanese applications include homemade microwave mochi, manju, chi-chi-dango, and arare (rice crackers). Our milling facilities are dedicated exclusively to the production of rice products.
