What is Calasparra Rice?

Calasparra rice is a type of short-grain rice cultivated in the region of Calasparra, in the province of Murcia, Spain. It is characterized by its ability to absorb liquids without breaking apart, making it ideal for dishes such as paella, brothy rice dishes, and other traditional stews. Its unique texture and flavor have made it a highly prized ingredient in Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine overall. This rice is cultivated in terraced fields and mountainous areas, contributing to its uniqueness and quality. 

 

Why to choose Calasparra Rice?

  • Higher Yield: Thanks to its greater natural dehydration, the product absorbs a larger quantity of broth, resulting in each kilogram of rice yielding a greater number of servings.

  • Resistance to Clumping: This is due to the consistent grouping of starch in the grain, with a low level of amylose.

  • Natural Product: As it is irrigated with clean and fresh water, freshly released from reservoirs.

ABOUT VIRGEN DE LA ESPERANZA

From Murcia, Spain

The "Virgen de la Esperanza" Farming Cooperative in Calasparra has been collectively producing and marketing 95% of the rice grown in this privileged cultivation area since 1962. The cooperative consists of 150 member producers, collectively managing a total of 600 hectares.

The exceptionally high quality of the product, combined with the sharp management skills of its members, has been instrumental in placing CALASPARRA RICE on the highest pedestal of global gastronomy. Marketed through our cooperative, it reaches every corner of the world. It is the first rice in the world to obtain a Designation of Origin, achieved in 1986 through Ministerial Order 54 of March 4th, published in the Official State Gazette (B.O.E.), and the only rice with a D.O. granted by the Ministry of Agriculture.
