Pineapple, Gold Sweet - Organic - 1 ea
Did you know?
Pineapples are a composite of many flowers whose individual fruitlets fuse together around a central core. Each fruitlet can be identified by an "eye," the rough spiny marking on the pineapple's surface.
Pineapples have exceptional juiciness and a vibrant tropical flavour that balances the tastes of sweet and tart.
Pineapple is a great source of vitamin C, B vitamins, fiber, and minerals like manganese. Pineapple contains bromelain, which is a mix of enzymes that studies show can reduce inflammation and nasal swelling and aid in the healing of wounds and burns, according to the NCCIH. It’s also been linked to helping improve digestion and has historically been used in Central and South American countries to treat digestive disorders.
