  6. 6. Bamboo chemical utilization The latest research showed that there are many different flavone glycosides in bamboo leaves, which have excellent physiological activities as anti-free radical, anti-oxidation and anti-aging agents. Green-dry leaves bamboo were picked in autumn and extracted. After boiling the bamboo leaves in water, the extract was concentrated in vacuum, and the impurities removed using the ethanol precipitation method, to give a fine bamboo leaf juice. The bamboo beer was prepared by adding the juice to the original beer, then mixed, filtered and bottled. The amount of the juice added, taking its total flavonoids (TF) amount as index, was between 10 to 50 mg per liter, depending on requirements. In addition to the general characteristics of beer, bamboo beer showed multiple health benefits, such as lowering blood lipids and preventing heart diseases. Furthermore, bamboo beer presents a typical delicate fragrance of bamboo to match the beer flavor. This health beer is available in Chinese markets. Flavonoids made from bamboo leaves are also used to make medicine such as capsules.

Chemicals: Bamboo charcoal can be used as the raw materials of bamboo active carbon. Bamboo charcoal shows strong absorption because of the special structure of micro holes of the bamboo stem, and the function would be more outstanding after it is activated. Tests show that the absorption properties of bamboo active carbon are extremely good. Medicine and health care: Pillows and mats made of bamboo charcoal can soothe the nerves, relax backaches, and control snoring. Bamboo charcoal also has the functions of deodorization, dehumidifier and fungicide, which are essential to family needs. Environment protection: Bamboo charcoal can be used as a water clarifier, shield off electromagnetic waves and absorber of poisonous gases. Pollution indoors caused by poisonous materials would be absorbed if the panels were made of bamboo charcoal instead of the asbestos flakeboard and plastic boards. 95% of the nicotine and other poisonous materials would be absorbed if cigarette filters were made of bamboo charcoal. Other fields: Bamboo charcoal can be made into many kinds of compound materials in the material industry. It also can be made into handicrafts, feed additives and high capacity rechargeable storage batteries, etc.
