Calasparra is an ancient rice strain which matures very slowly and it is the only rice in the world that carries a DOC certification. Grown in the mountains of the Province of Murcia in Spain where a natural pure mountain water irrigation system, first engineered by the Moors over 1,000 years ago, and cool wet climate produces a round grain that can absorb 30% more liquid than ordinary rice varieties.

Calasparra Paella Rice is perfect for paella and other rice dishes made using the absorption method due to its superior ability to take on flavours through the cooking stock. It is also popular among chefs because the grains remain separate and do not stick together like many other rice varieties.
