Bioactive compounds (BACs)

BACs in plants are extra nutritional constituents that occur in small quantities that provide health benefits beyond the basic nutritional value of the product. BACs are known to elicit pharmacological and toxicological effects in humans and animals. In bamboo shoots, BACs come in e form of phenolic compounds; phytosterols and dietary fibre

Phenolic compounds (PCs)

Products of secondary metabolism that are known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatorie, anti-allergic, antimicrobial, cardioprotective and vasodilating properties. It has also been suggested that PCs have additional effects such as anti-ageing and anti-fatigue.


Found in the oil fraction of the plant, phytosterols are a cholesterol-lowering agent that hence aids in cardiovascular health. There is also evidence to suggest that phytoseterols display anticancer properties. The predominant sterols found in bamboo shoots are; B-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol.
