Q. Should I Soak or Rinse My Rice?
Rinsing or soaking rice is a personal preference. Here at Lotus Foods, we do not suggest rinsing our rice. Depending on the rice varietal some rice will have a different texture when soaked before cooking. We do not include soaking in our recipes as we know many people prefer recipes that can be cooked quickly, but if you prefer to soak your rice that's fine too, just keep in mind it will reduce the cooking time needed.
