Mochi is widely used in Japan. It is made from sweet rice, cooked for a long time with a lot of water, until the rice becomes sticky. It is then pounded into a flat rice cake to be reheated and consumed. It is very sweet and has great healing advantages. Good for breastfeeding, for anemia, for overcoming general fatigue and for weight gain. It is found next to the refrigerated tofu and tempeh in your natural food market.
