Pineapple belongs to the bromeliad family. Its skin and leaves are a bit thorny. This fruit’s yellow pulp has a very mild taste when ripe and contains bromelain, an enzyme that makes digestion easier. Pineapple is very rich in vitamin C, which is essential to be energetic. Thanks to its unique flavour, this fruit is easy to bend in many salty and sweet recipes. Plain pineapple is also delicious, with its scented and juicy flesh.
When Christopher Columbus landed in Guadeloupe, the natives used to call it “Anana”. Today, pineapple is one of the most widespread tropical fruits in the world. It grows widely in South America and in various parts of Africa.
