The abundant rainfall and pollution-free environment of Shanglin County provide an excellent environment for the growth of bamboo shoots, which makes Daming Mountain, Qingshui River as well as brooks and hilly ponds the ideal bases for planting bamboo shoots. Among them, the sweet bamboo shoots and dried bamboo shoots planted in Daming Mountain are the best. The spring water of Daming Mountain cultivates the fresh, crisp and sweet taste of the sweet bamboo shoots, which makes them become the rage in the market. Around the Qingming Festival, farmers begin to dig fresh bamboo shoots, and then spend half a year on making dried bamboo shoots by means of multiple crafts like shelling, cooking, tableting and drying. With the whole pollution-free handmade process, the green and original quality of bamboo shoots can be maintained.
Bamboo shoots, bearing extremely high nutritional values, a variety of vitamins, as well as high content and low calories in cellulose, are able to dispel grease and clear intestines and stomach, and are especially good for obese people.
