"Musenmai" means "prewashed rice". Sounds strange, do you think? Maybe it's new to you that rice should be washed at all? In Japan it is unthinkable to cook unwashed rice and washing the rice several times is a must. It's not just about removing impurities from the rice, it's also about getting rid of rice bran. The rice should therefore be washed so long and often until the water runs clear. With "Musenmai" this process has already been done for you without any loss of umami. So you not only save time and effort, but also water! So if you are in a hurry or if you are more of the comfortable type, then Musenmai is our recommendation for you!
