Glutinous rice, also called sticky rice, or mochi rice, is a type of short-grained Asian rice that is especially sticky when cooked. Glutinous rice does not contain dietary gluten and thus should be safe for gluten-free diets. It is called glutinous in the sense of being glue-like or sticky and not in the sense of containing gluten.
