Is a Pineapple Healthy Fruit? - Health and Medicine 20

Fig 01- Pineapple without skin

It is surprise me that Americans consume pineapple increasing year by year. From 3.22 pound (1.46 kg) per capita in 2000 to 7.80 pound (3.54 kg) per capita in 2018.

Pineapples are grown well in the most 3 states and 1 US territory:

- Hawaii

- Florida

- California

- Puerto Rico (US territory).

However, pineapple in the USA markets are imported from several countries such as:

- Costa Rica

- Honduras

- Mexico

- Guatemala

- Thailand

Is a Pineapple Healthy Fruit?

Yes!!


Fig 03- Chunks or slices of pineapple are ready to consume.

From many sources include from “healthline” (May 26, 2019), pineapples have some health benefits:

- boosting immune system

- speeding recovery from surgery

- rich in nutrients

- having antioxidants to fight many diseases

- reducing cancer risk.

It is recommended to consume about one cup (128 gram) of pineapple per day. Why?

Since pineapple has higher vitamin C content, consuming too much will lead to:

- nausea

- vomiting

- headache

- insomnia

- abdominal pain


Have you ever tasted pineapple? Do you like it?

  7. You don't want too much of a good thing. But it can be good for you too. I like it fermented..but even then you have to be careful..it can be intoxicating if you ferment it too long.

  11. Thanks for visiting me. I love pineapple, and last few years I have leaned to judge if it's ripe and peel it! But the taste of the fruit is so much better than canned! Use it in several dishes.
