Do You Know?

Nutritive value of canned Pineapple differs from fresh Pineapple. During canning process, due to involvement of heat, a fair amount of the vitamin C and other heat-sensitive vitamins get lost in translation. According to Nutritiondata.com, pineapple canned in juice has only about 60% as much vitamin C as fresh raw pineapple.

Moreover Bromelain enzyme, which is an anti-inflammatory, present in raw pineapple, is destroyed in the canning process.
