Information on juicing Pineapple

Pineapples don't ripen after they're picked, so make sure they are ripe in the shop before buying. To tell whether a Pineapple is ripe and ready for juicing lift it, squeeze it, and smell it. The fruit should be heavy, which means it's juicy; the skin should yield slightly to a gentle squeeze; and the aroma should be sweet.

Pineapple juice contains the enzyme bromelain. Bromelain is a natural digestive enzyme that also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Bromelain is found in highest concentrations in the rind of the pineapple, only juice the rind if you know the pineapple has been grown organically.

Pineapples used to be used to prevent scurvy in sailors who were passing through the tropics as pineapple juice is a good source of vitamin C.

A native of the Americas, the pineapple was named pina by the Spanish because of the fruit's likeness to a pine cone.
