A PINEAPPLE IS NOT AN APPLE - NOR IS IT PINE. IT IS A BERRY.





Pineapples are used in desserts such as fruit salad, as well as in some savory dishes, including pizza toppings, or as a grilled ring on a hamburger. Crushed pineapple is used in yogurt, jam, sweets, and ice cream. The juice of the pineapple is served as a beverage, and it is also the main ingredient in cocktails such as the piña colada and in the drink tepache
Bromelain present in all parts of the pineapple plant, Bromelain is a mixture of proteolytic enzymes Bromelain may be unsafe for some users, such as in pregnancy, allergies, or anti coagulation therapy.
Raw pineapple juice may be useful as a meat marinade and tenderizer. Although pineapple enzymes can interfere with the preparation of some foods or manufactured products, such as gelatin-based desserts or gel capsules, their proteolytic activity responsible for such properties may be degraded during cooking and canning. The quantity of bromelain in a typical serving of pineapple fruit is probably not significant, but specific extraction can yield sufficient quantities for domestic and industrial processing.
