Benefits of Bamboo Shoots
Bamboo shoots are a good source of dietary fiber. A 3.5 oz. serving of cooked shoots delivers 4 percent of the fiber you need each day, and canned shoots provide 6 percent of the daily value, or DV, for fiber. According to the MedlinePlus, fiber helps lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar, while helping to regulate your digestion, and might lower your risk of certain cancers, including colon cancer.
