What has leaves that are swords and fruits that are all eyes ? The pineapple, of course. The fruit varies considerably in size and color and is found in most of the tropical countries. Besides being delicious and versatile and an excellent source of vitamins A, C and to a lesser extent, B, the pineapple is also an aid to digestion and relief for acid dyspepsia. A protein-digesting enzyme extracted from the stem can be employed as a meat tenderizer, a beer clarifier and an anti-inflammatory drug.

In Taiwan and the Philippines, the peels discarded during the canning process are pressed to make vinegar. The shells, shredded and kiln-dried, make nutritious cattle food. The tough, sword-like leaves yield a fiber that is woven into a delicate, semi-transparent cloth in the Philippines. Mixed with straw and bamboo, the leaf fibers are also used to make paper for Chinese painting. By-products from the manufacture of juice include liquid sugar used in caning, ascorbic acid to keep frozen peaches from turning brown, and citric acid for beverage and medical applications.

 

Points to include:

* important source of vitamins

* relieves dyspepsia

* vinegar, cattle food, paper

* helps digestion

* used as meat tenderizer, beer clarifier and anti-inflammatory drug

* liquid sugar, ascorbic acid and citric acid
