Why We Love Pineapples

Why We Love Pineapples

Not only are pineapples delicious, but they are rich in a variety of essential nutrients, as well as other compounds that may be beneficial for health - here are a few reasons why we love pineapples!

Pineapples are nutritious!

They are rich in fibre and water, as well as other essential nutrients such as: 

  • Carbohydrates
  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Manganese
  • B vitamins 
  • Vitamin C
  • Antioxidants

…sort of like a multivitamin! And they are low in calories, fat and sodium making them a nutrient dense fruit. 

Health Benefits

Pineapples may benefit health in several different ways thanks to their nutrient composition. 

The combination of dietary fibre and digestive enzymes can be beneficial for digestion by promoting regularity and helping with the breakdown of food, specifically the breakdown of proteins into amino acids!

In animal models, studies have shown that pineapple consumption can reduce cholesterol levels and improve cardiovascular health, which means there is a potential that pineapple can have the same effect in humans, although more research is needed.

Bromelain found in pineapple has also been found to reduce pain and inflammation in patients with osteoarthritis, and it may potentially serve as an alternative to standard anti-inflammatory drugs as it does not cause any adverse effects!

What is bromelain?

Bromelain is a digestive enzyme that helps with the breakdown of proteins. A recent social media trend has people drinking pineapple juice or eating pineapple prior to wisdom teeth removal - this is because the anti-inflammatory properties of bromelain can contribute to a reduction in pain and swelling after a procedure, which may also help reduce recovery time. So if you’re getting your wisdom teeth removed or have another procedure that may cause swelling afterwards, try upping your pineapple intake the days leading up to it!

How to eat more pineapple

Pineapples can easily be incorporated into your diet, my personal favourites are pineapple in tacos, smoothies, or just as a snack. It can also be incorporated into yoghourt bowls, baked goods, salads, BBQs, pina coladas, and even on pizzas - but we will be judging you for this one!
