Pineapple

  • Excellent source of vitamin C
  • Once a rare delicacy, the pineapple has become a familiar fruit in many parts of the world. It was discovered in the West Indies by Christopher Columbus and other early explorers and apparently was disseminated mainly by the Portuguese navigators. Now it grows in most tropical lands.

  • Fresh pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C, but, most importantly, it is a great source of the enzyme Bromelain, which helps the body's digestive system and has anti inflammatory properties as well.

  • Although small amounts of vitamin C are lost during the heat treatment, used in canning pineapples, most of what is lost ends up in the liquid in which the product is packed. The vitamin C retained after canning remains stable during the shelf life of the canned product.
