Abstract:
Bamboos are grown mainly in the deciduous and tropical evergreen areas of Asia, Africa, Caribbean and Latin America. They are one of the most important resources on the earth and regarded one of the best food items among the people all over the world. Bamboos are characterized by woody and mostly hollow culms. Presence of high amount of dietary fibre, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and low fat content in bamboo shoots have made it attractive to many people for consumption. Assessment of the physical status of four edible bamboo shoots (with and without sheath) harvested at different stages was performed. It was observed that the edible portion decreased with ageing while the shoot weight, tip and base diameter, and peel percentage were increased.
