Benefits of Bamboo Shoots
Bamboo shoots are the edible shoots
Bamboo shoots are the edible shoots of the bamboo plant and are usually harvested before they are two weeks old. The shoots have a tough exterior and a tender interior with a faintly sweet flavour. It is important to peel the bamboo shoots before using since they have a bitter taste and are difficult to digest.
