Pineapple (ananas comosus)

  1. 1. PINEAPPLE (ANANAS COMOSUS)
  2. 2. Pineapple can be consumed fresh, canned or juiced and can be used in a variety of ways. It is popularly used in desserts, salads (usually tropical fruit salads, but it can vary), jams, yogurts, ice creams, various candies, as a complement to meat dishes and in fruit cocktail. The popularity of the pineapple is due to its sweet-sour taste.
  3. 3. • Mainly from its stem, pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme, bromelain, which breaks down protein. • If having sufficient bromelain content, pineapple juice can thus be used as a marinade and tenderizer for meat. • Pineapple enzymes can interfere with the preparation of some foods, such as jelly or other gelatin-based desserts, but would be destroyed during cooking and the canning process. • The quantity of bromelain in the fruit is probably not significant, being mostly in the inedible stalk. Bromelain is unlikely to survive intact the proteolytic processes of digestion.
  4. 4. MEDICINAL VALUE • Both the root and fruit may be eaten or applied topically as an anti-inflammatory or as a proteolytic agent. In some practices, it may be used as an antihelminthic agent. • Bromelain purified from pineapple stem or fresh juice, then provided in the diet over 6 months, decreased the severity of colonic inflammation in mice with experimental colitis.
  5. 5. PEPPERMINT (MENTHA X. PEPERTIA) • Peppermint (Mentha × peperita, also known as M. balsamea Willd.) is a hybrid mint, a cross between the watermint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata). It is found wild occasionally with its parent species.
  6. 6. • Peppermint has a long tradition of medicinal use, with archaeological evidence placing its use at least as far back as ten thousand years ago. • Peppermint has a high menthol content, and is often used as tea and for flavoring ice cream, confectionery, chewing gum, and toothpaste. The oil also contains menthone and menthyl esters, particularly menthyl acetate.
  7. 7. • Peppermint flowers are large nectar producers and honey bees as well as other nectar harvesting organisms forage them heavily. A mild, pleasant varietal honey can be produced if there is a sufficient area of plants. • Peppermint oil has a high concentration of natural pesticides, mainly menthone.
