Thailand’s jasmine 105 has been named the world’s best-tasting rice this year at the 12th World Rice Conference, which was held online from Tuesday to Thursday.

 

 

The annual conference also includes a best-rice contest, and the 105 jasmine rice variety was added to the line-up this year by the Thai Rice Exporters Association.

 

The 105 variety won on all criteria, namely smell, taste, texture and shape, in a blind test conducted by the judges.

The world's best-tasting rice this year was organized at the 12th Rice Trader World Rice Conference 2020 in the United States.

Thailand's jasmine rice 105 variety is generated from a volatile matter called 2-acetyl-1-pyroline.

However to maintain its fragrance, the rice has to be kept in cool places at around 15 degrees Celsius.

Vietnam's ST25 fragrant rice was ranked second at the 2020 World's Best Rice Contest.

And this was across all grain types ? As well short grain ? I doubt a Jasmine rice would win in terms of taste.

 

The best rice that I have ever tasted is Kokuho Rose Rice, a short grain grown in California. Beats everything I ever came across by a far margin - including short grain I have tasted in Japan. Very unfortunately I have never seen this rice in Thailand and I do not know how much it would cost to import incl. taxes etc. (available on Amazon).

I always thought rice was just rice, until i married my present wife.

In our store room we have 4 different rice types, the other day i went to mill some rice, bag was sticky rice bag nearly empty, so i opened/ milled some from another bag, wife comes home..... Yak, yak, yak, why you do that she asks.

Oops silly me, i mixed jasmine rice and sticky rice together.🙄

My personal preference is India Gate basmati rice [classic long grain] best rice I've ever tasted.
