Pineapple has Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme. Proteolytic means "breaks down protein",


The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family.

It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit. The pineapple is the only available edible bromeliad today.

It is a multiple fruit. One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of individual floweret's that grow together to form the entire fruit. Each scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.
Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness. Choose your pineapple by smell.If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit.

The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste.


The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.


Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount.​


Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.​


Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory.

Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis.

Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat.​

If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet.​

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.


It's also good for a healthier mouth. The fresh juice discourages plaque growth.
