  • Nutrition Tip

    Pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. It is also a good source of copper, B-complex vitamins, dietary fiber, folate, and pantothenic acid.

    Pineapple contains bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, which has anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting properties. Studies have shown that regular consumption of pineapple can be helpful against arthritis and indigestion.
