Nishiki rice is a brand of Japanese rice produced by JFC International Inc., a California-based company. Although it is originally from Japan, it is presently grown in California. It is a medium-grained rice variety that is either white or brown. It is used for making sushi and sticky rice.
For the white kind of rice, munsenmai is a milling technique employed for processing this kind of rice. In this technique, the rice is mixed with some water and heated tapioca. Then the tapioca and bran from the rice surface is removed after the aleurone layer (bran) is moisturized. There is no layer of powder or cornstarch on the grains. There is no need to rinse the rice before cooking because of this milling technique.
