I know it's steamed so I'm going to get a steamer, but what kind of rice is it? Isn't a certain kind of rice, like Jasmine or something? BTW, I LOVE IT!

chinese, thai, and vietnamese places typically use jasmine; japanese places use calrose; indian uses basmati.

Is it not boiled, though? (I don't eat in eastern restraunts much, so I don't know.)

No, it's definately more boiled. Typically they have giant industrial-sized rice cookers. (Can do like 30 cups of rice at once). You just dump a bunch of rice in the thing, add an equal part of water and close the lid. The water boils and cooks the rice. It would take you years to try to steam rice.

wouldn't that be considered steamed? once the rice has done the first boil then cover the lid and the it steams on it's own no? just wondering

The purpose of the water boiling is to create the steam. It's still called steamed rice.

the best thing to do w/ white rice is to put a little bit of butter + american + provolone cheese on it and mix it so it melts, it's so good, damn i'm hungry now lol

You can steam it or boil it but the difference is negligible. Something I noticed from the nutrition facts it that there is NO dietary fiber in this stuff.
