Product Description

Native Forest Organic Sliced Bamboo Shoots are tasty Asian vegetables that complement popular regional dishes such as soup and stir fry. Our mission is to offer you the most delicious and healthful bamboo shoots while renewing the fertility of the soil using time-tested organic practices. We believe organic principles make sense for people, for the planet and for the product. We begin with a special variety of certified organic bamboo, and harvest the young shoots when they are at their most tender. We wash, slice and promptly pack the organic bamboo shoots to retain their delicate flavor and crisp "al dente" texture. You and your family will love the great taste and convenience of Native Forest Organic Bamboo Shoots. The quality that you see and taste is only a hint of the care behind this, and every Native Forest product.

I've been a fan of bamboo shoots for years, but have always struggled with finding quality product in a can.

My search is over. While another reviewer is correct that these are not big slices, they are not chopped bits either. I happen to prefer these smaller slices to the big, sometimes tough, slabs in other products. The flavor is mild, but you still get a hint of that bamboo shoot funk, the texture is a soft crunch.

The other night I rinsed a can and dumped it in my rice cooker with rice, coconut milk and green curry paste for a one pot meal.

The package arrived undamaged with no dented cans.

The 1 star reviewer rated this product harshly, saying that the bamboo was in chopped bits. This of course is not true, but they *are* thinly cut and a very delicate coloured bamboo compared to the thick yellow slices I have sometimes purchased unknowingly when trying new brands for my thai curry experimentation. These tasted lovely, and I am happy to know that they are organic as well, even if I am not completely sure if the can is BPA free. (I have read the company has many of their products in BPA free cans, 1 being their coconut milk which is delicious and I used in the same curry)

I purchased 2 cases of these and received 4 dented cans out of 12. Disappointing? Yes, but the dents were very minor and in no way did it affect the quality or my ability to open the cans. (While I do know that sometimes cans from products purchased on Amazon may be badly damaged, mine were not.)

Like my title suggests, this is a highly recommended product, and the taste of the bamboo very much compliments the curries I make. The flavour is a bit 'lighter' and not as overpowering a bamboo taste vs. other brands, but this was not an issue for me. They offer great subscribe and save offers on this product (I paid $9.73 per 6 cans with free shipping) and much cheaper than purchasing in stores near me.

The ONLY flaw I can think of, is I wish they offered another variety of bamboo shoots in the very very thin shredded like slices) as I sometimes prefer that size in certain dishes, but that is just a minute point. I will continue to purchase this product when they are a good price :)

I was excited when I found these organic bamboo shoots on Amazon. We love stir fry and bamboo shoots, but organic ones are hard to find at decent prices. So we ordered a pack of these from Amazon to try. Amazon's pack price subscribe and save was a bargain. Yes, these "shoots" are small slices, and we wish they were bigger slices. But the taste was great, and to compensate for the small slice size, we just added lots of them--yummy. But then my wife said, "By the way, did you check with the manufacturer to see if the cans are PBA-free?" Duhhh! For us, it's a priority to try to avoid toxins like PBA in our foods. And I certainly knew that most canned foods were in PBA-lined cans, and that recent research proved that the PBA leached from the can linings into the food. I also knew that the best food manufacturers are in the process of converting to non-PBA cans. I must have been in a real brain fog In my feverish excitement at finding affordable organic bamboo shoots, because I totally forgot the PBA question prior to clicking "order" at Amazon. So I called "Edward & Sons"--the company that produces "Native Forest" brand organic foods [805-684-8500; [...]; Carpenteria, CA]. The pleasant staff told me that they were in the process of converting their products to PBA-free cans, but the organic bamboo shoots had not yet been converted to PBA-free cans, and they suggested I check back in a few months. Bummer! Summary: I temporarily give these a 1 star because of the PBA in the cans--very bad toxin; we won't eat any more until they're in PBA-free cans. But for taste, quality, being organic, and reasonably priced, we would rate them 5 star despite the small size slices. So once Edward & Sons converts them to PBA-free cans, we'll rate them 5 star. We applaud Edward & Sons for their commitment to being a leader in eliminating PBA in their cans.

I ended up receiving 6 very dented cans of diced (1cm x 1cm) bamboo shoots.
