Originally from South America, pineapple is the exotic fruit par excellence. With its mild, tropical climate, Costa Rica is one of its largest international producers.
Pineapples are made of water for approximately 87%, and they contain high levels of vitamin C, B6 and E. They are particularly rich in potassium and, in a slightly smaller percentage, magnesium, calcium, phosphor, iodine and sodium.
Pineapples also contain bromelain, a substance which facilitates the breakdown of proteins and supports digestion thanks to its depurating, detoxicating qualities.
Pineapples are low in calories (about 50 kcal per 100 g) and have naturally exceptional antioxidant qualities.
One bottle DiFrutta Pineapple juicecontains the equivalent to 1 pineapple.
