I like to add pineapple whenever I can in my cooking because of its health benefits.

It’s high in fiber and, unlike any other fruit, pineapples contain a significant amount of Bromelain which an enzyme that helps digestion.

And because of its bromelain levels, pineapples can help reduce excessive blood coagulation.
