  • Benefits of Bamboo Shoots

    Rich in nutrients

    Shoots have a high content of protein (amino acids), carbohydrate, minerals, and several vitamins. De toxification of thus prepared meat is generally done through boiling in water. Bamboo shoots contain taxiphyllin, a cyanogenic glycoside, which should be removed before use them in cooking. Boiling in a bowl of uncovered salted water for about 20 25 minutes removes most of these glycosides. To be sure, discard this water and boil again in fresh water for another 5 10 minutes would make them completely safe to eat.
