Bamboo shoot is a traditional delicacy in many Asian countries and considered as a healthy food since ancient times. However, changing lifestyle and increasing globalization has caused a drastic change in the food system and traditional vegetables like bamboo shoots are being neglected though they are highly nutritious. In recent years, its importance as a health food has been highlighted and has generated a huge amount of interest amongst researchers and nutritionist alike. Its application in the food industry for food fortification is being highlighted in the present work. Functional biscuits were developed by substituting wheat flour with 20% processed bamboo shoot paste. Fortified biscuits had a significant (P<0.05) increase in the amount of proteins, phenols, phytosterols, vitamin C and dietary fiber content compared to the control biscuits. On the basis of high sensory score and overall acceptability of the bamboo shoot paste fortified biscuits, it is concluded that bamboo shoot supplementation in biscuits is a convenient vehicle for imparting nutrients and health-promoting phytochemicals into people’s diet.
