Bamboo shoots are rich in dietary fiber. There are two types of dietary fiber: insoluble and soluble. Bamboo shoots are rich in what is called cellulose, which is insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber has the property of expanding in the stomach when eaten, which can be expected to prevent overeating. It also stimulates the intestines by swelling, so it can be expected to prevent and improve constipation and regulate bowel movements.
Bamboo shoots are also rich in glutamic acid and tyrosine, which are elements of umami.
When combined with the flavorful Yume no Daichi, a synergistic effect is created, making the dish even more delicious.
