Granted DOP status in 1986, Calasparra is still, to this day, the only such protected rice in the European community
Unlike most other Mediterranean rices, Calsaparra rice is grown in the high mountains of Spain’s Murcia province, where it is irrigated by pure, cold mountain waters. Calasparra rice is grown free from pesticides and herbicides and is processed without the use of any chemicals
Calasparra rice is the result of a long, slow maturation process which produces a rice that is far superior for paella and other traditional Spanish rice dishes. This maturation process results in a very dry rice grain, enabling it to absorb far more of the flavorful broth and spices than other short grain rices. It is precisely these properties that make this rice the best suited for paella and other traditional Spanish dishes
