Cherimoya &
Pineapple Information
Nutrition Facts
> Fresh
A tasty and nutritious fruit popular in Thailand, the Phillipines and many other countries around the world. Store in the refrigerator.

How about a fine fruit salad of pineapple and blue grapes? Serve in a little bowl with a small fork in front of the television, just before diner, with or without cream.

Fresh fruit is a great appetizer. Have fruit before other meals, not after.

Fresh pineapple is a good source of vitamin  A & C and contains everything a human needs, even a tiny bit of protein. Vitamin A is good for healthy skin and hair and is necessary for proper bone growth, tooth development, and reproduction.

Pineapples contain a protein-splitting enzyme. Other fruit that contains this enzyme are fresh kiwi, papaya and babaco. This substance makes the fruit easy to digest and fried together with meat it makes it more tender. If you put this fruit in dairy products it will make them watery. If the fruit is cooked like all canned and other processed fruit this enzyme is no longer active.
