Located in what we like to call the “Frozen Sushi Sticky Rice Capital of the World”, Henderson, North Carolina, our product, Slice of Rice™, is a frozen sheet of sticky rice that can be thawed in minutes, returning to perfect taste and texture, for rolling your own Fusion Rolls. No cooking, no microwaving, just run under cold water (advisable to keep it in the vacuum pack at this point) for a few minutes, remove from package and you are ready to rock-n-roll, quite literally.
I am Richard Cronk, the founder and inventor of this great, big idea!
My mission in the development of this product was to bring a consistent, healthy, easy to roll rice sheet into the marketplace. Life moves fast-so should your sushi rolling! Convenience (no prep) was paramount, but quality and natural ingredients had to rule. I’m not a fan of cane sugars or high fructose corn syrup, which frequently are used to make sushi rice ‘stick’; therefore our primary organic vinegar sweetener is actually Diabetic-friendly. We produce a healthy, sushi sticky rice like no other!
The key to good sushi rice is obviously the ‘sticky factor’. It should be sticky enough that, the grains adhere to each other without falling apart, but not so sticky that you end up with a pasty, gloppy mess. It should not be mushy or crunchy, but have a slight “bounce back”, or al dente, quality to it. Taste is somewhat subjective, but general acceptance would be the vinegar undercurrent with a slightly sweet finish. Ease of rolling is what is so unique with Slice of Rice-it handles superbly in a rolling mat, with gentle pressure with no sticky kernel mess.
We are a small company, and I wear numerous hats as CEO/Chief Proselytizer/Capital Raiser and sometime dishwasher. Launching our product into the retail space is next on our agenda, as we have wonderful Executive Chef testimonials, and great feedback from our food service distributors.
