You might call it a weird tradition but once you know why we do it you’ll find that it’s absolutely logical. This era we’re seeing a push for zero wastage living. And that’s the kind of living where nothing goes to waste and it’s possible.
Why not start one pineapple peel at a time then right?
Nutritional Benefits of Pineapple
Pineapples are rich in vitamin C and manganese. They are also an excellent source of dietary fiber and bromelain (an enzyme).
Manganese is important for the antioxidant defenses. Pineapple is also rich in thiamine and vitamin B, which is good for energy production.
Pineapple is ideal for diets, because it has no cholesterol, no fat and it is low in sodium. A cup of pineapple pieces contains only 82 calories.
Health Properties of Pineapples
Pineapple is the only dietary source of bromelain. The core of the fruit has the highest concentration of bromelain, but it is also located in whole fruit. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, bromelain is useful in treating sports injuries and for relieving pain.
