Pineapple is an herbaceous perennial, growing up to 1.5 meters tall in tropical settings. The plant has waxy leaves and a short stem. Throughout the growing process, pineapple may produce up to 200 flowers. After this, several berries that make up a pineapple come together to form the fruit everyone is familiar with.
In addition to pineapple’s smooth sweetness that goes well in a number of nutraceutical formulations, it also offers the enzyme bromelain. Bromelain is a popular ingredient in post-workout products.
Another nutrient found in pineapple is vitamin C, with a one-cup serving providing up to 40% of the recommended daily value. Pineapple also contains thiamine, vitamin B-6, and magnesium.
From sports supplements to a colorant to encapsulation, pineapple lends itself to a number of various uses. Formulate with this ingredient and ask for a sample.*
