Bamboo Fiber: How To Use & Top Recipes



Did you recently come across bamboo fiber on the web and have found yourself pondering just what it is and how you can benefit from it in your keto baking? Or, maybe you've already snagged a bag of bamboo fiber and are looking for some inspiration on how to use it in new and existing low-carb recipes. Today we'll run through what bamboo fiber is, how to use it, and share some of the top recipes. that use bamboo fiber from across the web. We'll update this over time, so be sure to check back with updates to our favorite recipes as we find them!

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.
