Nutritional values

Pineapple contains the anti-inflammatory and digestion-promoting enzyme bromelain and a good portion of vitamin C. Naturopaths use bromelain to treat arthritis, diabetic ulcers, and to speed up the healing process of injuries.

The valuable pineapple enzyme is very sensitive to heat. Therefore it is only found in raw fruit and freshly squeezed juice, but not in canned fruit or pasteurized juice!
