One fruit that often gets overlooked by many for favour of bananas, apples, and oranges is the pineapple. This is too bad however as pineapples are a great fruit to include in the diet and offer a number of different important nutrients.
Pineapples offer a very unique, sweet taste as well and work great as an addition to any fruit salad.
Let’s have a look at the nutritional stats for this fruit so you can see what you’re getting.
Major Nutrients Found In Pineapple
Pineapples are slightly higher in calories than some other comparable fruits such as berries, but are still a relatively low calorie food so should be able to fit on the plan nof just about anyone.
Pineapples are also a rich source of dietary fiber, Thiamin, vitamin B6, copper, as well as vitamin C and manganese, so you can see why you’re missing out by not including them in your day.
