Pineapple Juice

Being the native to Paraguay and Brazil, the fruit "Pineapple" is also called Ananas and Pina. The name “ananas” was derived from the Paraguayan “nana”, meaning "excellent fruit." This tropical king of fruits bearing resemblance to a pine cone and its juicy centre, also reminds of an apple. Considered to be the fruit of royalty in the regions of Europe, its juice holds the credit of bringing the taste of the tropics to our tables for over 100 years.

Moreover, this fruit juice actually delivers ample amount of nutrients required by the human body. A 2 inch slice of pineapple provides 15 grams of sugar, Vitamin C and iron. Produced in the tropics having abundant sunshine, this healing fruit is primarily cultivated in the regions of Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico, Honduras, South Africa, Taiwan, Dominican Republic, Ivory Coast, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, India, El Salvador, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Australia, Thailand, the Philippines and Martinique.

 

Origin
Researchers claim to have found the symbolic carvings of pineapple fruit's form in pre-Incan ruins. Around some 500 years back, Christopher Columbus “discovered” this fruit, which he received in exchange for trinkets from Indians on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. He tasted the fruit and instantly appreciated its potential. He further came to know that the islanders drank pineapple juice to aid digestion and as a cure for bellyache, particularly after feasting on meat. Interestingly, women used it as a cleansing agent to improve the texture of their skin.

Moving ahead of Columbia, the pineapple fruit was later introduced by Columbus to Europe and then to Asia. The Spanish introduced it into the Philippines, Hawaii (introduced in the early 19th century, first commercial plantation in 1886) and Guam. The fruit was successfully cultivated in European hothouses, and pineapple pits, beginning in 1720. Today this fruit is successfully cultivated in all the tropical regions across the globe.
