What is Bamboo Fiber?
Bamboo fiber is a keto-friendly baking ingredient that is made from the pulp of bamboo plants. It is a gluten-free, grain-free, and low-carb alternative to traditional flours. With a surprisingly neutral flavor profile, bamboo fiber doesn't add so much of those funky flavors that are often found in keto-friendly flours and fibers. It's also a good source of insoluble fiber, which can help to promote digestive health. When used in baking, bamboo fiber can help to create a moist and chewy texture, add bulk, and help to bind ingredients together.
How Do I Use Bamboo Fiber?
Bamboo fiber shines in keto baking, helping to tackle those texture troubles that are all too common in low-carb recipes. If you're working with an existing recipe that doesn't include bamboo fiber, adding a small amount of bamboo fiber (we recommend starting with 2-3 tablespoons) can help to add bulk to a recipe and noticeably improve texture and crumb.
Alternatively, find an existing bamboo fiber recipe or flour blend (like some of the ones below) and closely follow it. It's best to measure bamboo fiber by weight, as bamboo fiber imperial measurements can vary from one brand to the next based on factors like how finely ground the fiber is.
