Pineapple: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients


Pineapple is rich in various vitamins and minerals and has mostly positive effects on the body. However, it is often valued not for the standard set of useful substances that can be found in any other fruit, but for a certain enzyme bromelain, concentrated mainly in the core of the fruit. There are even legends that this enzyme breaks down fat, which is why pineapple is often called the No. 1 fruit for weight loss. However, snacking on a late, heavy dinner with a few slices of pineapple will absolutely not help you burn off those extra calories. Today, science knows that the proteolytic enzyme bromelain promotes the breakdown of proteins, but there is no evidence that it has anything to do with the breakdown of fat. Therefore, pineapple, and in particular the enzyme it contains, can help better digest protein foods (meat, fish, dairy products), but not get rid of excess weight.
