Pineapple is originally from tropical America, has a diuretic effect, fighting the retention of liquids and is a good digestive. It has an anti-inflammatory action on soft tissues. Also used in therapies against cellulite. In the kitchen it is used both for the preparation of main courses and desserts.
The dehydrated pineapple is full of water-soluble vitamins and minerals that go away together with the water eliminated in substantial quantities, which makes the pineapple dehydrated especially rich of sugars, which we must pay attention to. The amount of vitamin C is slightly greater in the dehydrated pineapple than in the natural one, but a large part of the folate content seems to disappear. What is concentrated in the dehydrated pineapple is above all the so-called bromelain, a mixture of protein enzymes capable of helping the digestion of proteins, fighting inflammation and acting as a powerful antioxidant. So, if on the one hand dried pineapple is more a snack that a real resource of nutrients due to its high sugar content, we know we can find vitamin C and bromelain in large quantities.
The nutritional values of dehydrated pineapple are very interesting. < br /> The major content of nutrients, by virtue of the dehydration process, is in carbohydrates and sugars. The protein intake, on the other hand, is very limited. The picture of nutrients is completed with saturated fats and fiber, while the salts are totally absent. From this analysis, it follows that a moderate consumption of dry pineapple allows to have a regular functioning of the immune and urinary system and a good sustenance of the skin, preventing its aging.
