Fermentation is one of the oldest and most economical methods for producing and preserving foods. In addition to preservation, fermented foods can also have the added benefits of enhancing flavour, increased digestibility, improving nutritional value and pharmacological values. In Manipur, traditional fermented foods and beverages have been consumed as a regular food in different recipe over a long period of time. These household arts are handed down through generation by generation. Soibum, an indigenous fermented food, exclusively produced from succulent bamboo shoots is consumed as an indispensable constituent of the diets, familiar with social customs of Manipur and neighboring states since time immemorial. In the traditional method, succulent bamboo shoot sprouts are defoliated, chopped, pressed tightly into the wooden or earthen pots to ferment for 6-12 months.
