The pineapple is a favorite tropical fruit with a sweet and tangy taste. When fresh, it is an excellent source of manganese and vitamin C, as well as a good source of bromelain – a natural anti-inflammatory agent that is helpful for addressing the symptoms of sinusitis, gout and other types of arthritis, and for swelling and bruising.
Pineapple is versatile – eat it plain, in a smoothie or fruit salad, or use in relishes or to add sweetness to dishes such as pizza. Because pineapple has an intermediate score of 66 on the glycemic index, diabetics looking for low-index fruits should eat cherries and apples more often than they eat pineapple.
