NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF DRIED PINEAPPLE
Dried pineapple is a quick and easy way to enjoy a taste of the tropics without going to the trouble of peeling and refrigerating the fresh fruit. The plant traces its origins to South America and was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in the 16th century. Commercial production in Hawaii began in the early 20th century. Thailand, the Philippines and Brazil top the list today for worldwide production of this fruit. Through the evaporation process, fresh chunks and rings of pineapple are dried at the peak of ripeness, the dried fruit product retains all of its natural sweet flavor.
One of the most powerful substances found in pineapple is bromelain, which not only fights inflammation in the body but also aids in helping indigestion. Many people who suffer from the chronic aches and pains of aging or specific diseases such as arthritis, benefit from adding dried pineapple to their daily diet.
