It is named after the town of Arborio, in the Po Valley, where it is grown. Arborio rice when cooked, the rounded grains are firm, creamy, and chewy, due to its higher amylopectin starch content;] thus it has a starchy taste but blends well with other flavors. Arborio rice is often used to make risotto. Arborio rice is also used for rice pudding. Arborio rice is traditionally used to make risotto & rice puddings. It is a short grain rice which can absorb a lot of liquid & has a high starch content; when the rice is stirred repeatedly during the risotto process the starch is released & it results in a lovely creamy consistency.
