Thoughts from Low-sal-life

Bamboo shoots are a nice vegetable to add to soups and stir-fries. They are very nutritious, packed with lots of nutrients like thiamine, niacin, vitamin A, vitamin B6, potassium, and vitamin E. They are high in fiber and protein, including 17 amino acids. Bamboo shoots are low in carbohydrates and fat.

Swain et al. tested canned bamboo shoots in 1985 with a 0mg/kg salicylate level.

⚠ Notes/Caution

Bamboo shoots are normally canned in water, but sometimes there may be an added flavor, sodium benzoate or citric acid to prevent browning. Some sal-sensitive folks react, so please consider this when looking for a good source.
