Arborio is an Italian variety of superfino 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.
