Eat well: benefits of pineapple

Eat well: benefits of pineapple. [Newspaper] (2019)


Pineapple has its origins in the tropical regions of Brazil and Paraguay. Early Spanish settlers in the region were intrigued by the fruit’s regal look that resembled a pinecone. They described it as “pina de Indies”. Because of its look, native English speakers translated it to “pineapple”, even though it is not related to either the apple or the pine! In fact, the pineapple is a cluster of berries that is anchored to a core. The scales on the thick skin are actually its flowers!
