Benefits of Bamboo Shoots
While eating bamboo may sound strange to you, many countries in Asia eat bamboo, especially bamboo shoots as part of their daily diet. Ancient science says, the taller the tree, the more quality nutrition in the fruit, and this holds true for bamboo. Considered the tallest grass in the world, growing up to 25 30 feet tall, the bamboo shoot is highly nutritious. Bamboo is rich in phytochemicals, antioxidants, protein, potassium, fiber, essential fatty acids and other valuable nutrients that it is valued in Japan as a top healthcare food.
