The Impressive Pineapple

The pineapple originally comes from South America and Hawaii but is now commonly grown in many warm and tropical regions. This fruit not only tastes delicious but also contains high amounts of bromelain, an enzyme which breaks down proteins. This enzyme can have phenomenal effects on the body: it inhibits blood coagulation, improves blood circulation, has an anti-inflammatory effect, lowers blood pressure and helps to break down deposits on the inner walls of the blood vessels. Note though that this enzyme is broken down when heated, so cooked pineapple will no longer contain active bromelain. In addition to bromelain, pineapples contain almost all essential vitamins as well as important minerals and trace elements. No matter how you enjoy pineapple, in sweet or savory dishes, this superfood is worth incorporating into your diet.

🍍Pineapple🍍

Pineapples are one of the strangest looking fruits but actually pretty awesome!

This exotic fruit belongs to the flowering bromeliad plant family and takes around 2 years to mature. Pineapples contain the enzyme bromelain which can break down proteins (can tenderize meat) and supports digestive health. Pineapples also contain vital minerals including potassium, magnesium and calcium as well as the trace elements manganese, iron, copper and zinc. Small amounts of vitamin A, the vitamins of the B group and vitamin C are also present in this delicious fruit.

Pineapples are great as a snack, in sweet dishes such as a crisp, or in savory dishes such as fried rice or a salsa. Whichever way you enjoy eating pineapples, the possibilities are endless!

Tip: Pineapples don’t ripen after they have been harvested and their color doesn’t necessarily indicate ripeness. For example, a greener looking pineapple could be just as ripe as a yellow pineapple.
