Arborio is an Italian variety of superfine rice, one of the largest among the short Italian rice varieties in the species Oryza sativa japonica. Named after the commune of Arborio in the northwestern Italian region of Piedmont, Arborio rice is high in amylopectin starch, which is what gives risotto its creamy texture. The oval grains are about a quarter of an inch long and typically white. Arborio rice is also available brown (unrefined), but it’s much more commonly sold as white rice, which is starchier.
Arborio rice is what makes your favorite risotto dish creamy and delicious. The extra creaminess is credited to its high starch content.
Although arborio rice contains some protein and fat, almost 90 percent of the calories in the rice comes from its carbohydrate content. A 1/4-cup uncooked serving contains 38 grams of carbs, 4 grams of protein; and 0.5 grams of fat. Its carb content is very similar to long-grain white rice, which has 37 grams of carbs in a 1/4-cup serving. For additional nutrients, it is advised to cook arborio rice in some kind of stock.

The rice is great; however, the package (inside the packing box) had split open. It was made of very flimsy material. I had to scoop the rice out of the box. Jeannette George
