The medicinal properties of pineapples were recognised and exploited by native South Americans, who were the first to cultivate them. The juicy, yellow, fragrant fruit is packed with protective super nutrients and contains the antioxidant vitamin C and the protein-digesting enzyme bromelain. Pineapples can be eaten fresh or canned, and the juice makes a refreshing drink.
