Pineapple has a sweet and sour taste and is rich in nutrients. In fact, in addition to the delicious taste and high edible value of pineapple, you can also extract a pure natural plant protease called bromelain, and the utilization value is particularly high. Let's go with the editor to understand what the effect of pineapple berries has?

Efficacy and role of bromelain

1. Nutritional ingredients:

Pineapple meat contains fat, protein, carbohydrates, crude fiber, calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin C, niacin and organic acids. Pineapple contains a substance called "pineapple prion", which can decompose proteins, dissolve fibrin and blood clots blocked in tissues, improve local blood circulation, eliminate inflammation and edema; pineapple contains sugar, salts and enzymes diuretic effect, appropriate consumption is beneficial to nephritis, hypertensive patients; pineapple taste ganping, with stomach digestion, spleen and diarrhea, stomach thirst and other functions.

2. Medicinal effect:

Pineapple is flat, sweet, slightly astringent, with the effect of quenching thirst in the summer, eliminating food and diarrhea, tonifying the spleen and stomach, solidifying vitality, improving qi and blood, eliminating food, removing dampness and so on.

Pineapple is rich in pineapple prion enzyme, which can break down proteins and help digestion, especially after eating meat and greasy food, it is more appropriate to eat some pineapple. In addition, the sugar and enzymes contained in pineapple have a certain diuretic effect, which is beneficial to nephritis and hypertension, and also has auxiliary effects on bronchitis; it is rich in fiber, can stimulate the intestine, has an astringent effect, and will not have diarrhea at discretion; not only can strengthen the spleen and stomach, but also can consolidate the vitality; pineapple is broken down in the stomach, help digestion, and feel laryngeal discomfort after eating is an allergic symptom, at this time, you need to drink a cup of light salt water to dilute the sensitized ingredients.

Application of bromelain

First, the application of bromelain in the food processing industry

1, baked food: bromelain added to the raw dough, can make the gluten degradation, raw dough is softened after easy processing. It can also improve the taste and quality of biscuits and bread.

2. Cheese: used for the coagulation of casein.

3, meat tendering: bromelain will be meat protein macromolecular protein hydrolysis into easy to absorb small molecule amino acids and proteins. It can be widely used in the finishing of meat products.

4, bromelain in other food processing industry applications, someone has used bromelain to increase the PDI value and NSI value of soybean cake and soybean flour, so as to produce soluble protein products and breakfast, cereals and beverages containing soy flour. Others include the production of dehydrated beans, baby food and margarine; clarification of apple juice; manufacture of gummies; provision of digestible food for patients; and flavor of everyday foods.

Second, the application of bromelain in the pharmaceutical and health care products industry

1. Inhibit the growth of tumor cells

Relevant clinical studies have shown that bromelain can inhibit the growth of tumor cells.

2. Prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases

Bromelain as a proteolytic enzyme is beneficial for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. It can inhibit heart attacks and strokes caused by platelet aggregation, relieve angina symptoms, alleviate arterial contraction, and accelerate the breakdown of fibrinogen.

3. Used for burn scab removal

Bromelain selectively removes the skin, allowing the new skin to be transplanted as early as possible. Animal experiments have proven that bromelain has no adverse effects on adjacent normal skin. Topical antibiotics do not affect the effect of bromelain.

4. Anti-inflammatory effect

Bromelain is effective in treating inflammation and edema (including thrombophlebitis, skeletal muscle damage, hematomas, stomatitis, diabetic ulcers and sports injuries) in a variety of tissues, and bromelain has the potential to activate the inflammatory response. Bromelain also treats diarrhea.

5. Enhance drug absorption

The combination of bromelain with various antibiotics (such as tetracycline, amoxicillin, etc.) can improve its efficacy. Studies have shown that it can promote the transmission of antibiotics at the site of infection, thereby reducing the amount of antibiotics used. It is inferred that there is a similar effect for anti-cancer drugs. In addition, bromelain promotes the absorption of nutrients.


Third, the application of bromelain in the beauty and cosmetics industry

Bromelain has excellent effects on skin rejuvenation, whitening and spot removal.


Bromelain production

Take fresh and clean pineapple peel, thorns, cores and other scraps with a juice yield of more than 45%, press, and take the juice to filter out the fruit chips. The filtrate is added 0.025-0.05% benzoic acid and 5% kaolin is added for adsorption. After adjusting the pH of kaolin adsorbent with saturated sodium carbonate solution to 6.7-7.0, add 5% sodium chloride, stir and press the filter. Take the filtrate with hydrochloric acid to adjust the pH 4.8-5.1, add ammonium sulfate, let the precipitate, take the precipitate and dry it under reduced pressure, that is, bromelain. For pineapple scrap gauge, the yield is 0.054-0.103%.

The production method is obtained by extracting the pineapple fruit and stem (mainly using its outer skin) by pressing, salting (or acetone, ethanol precipitation) and then separating and drying.


Can pineapple whiten?

Bromelain has excellent effects on skin rejuvenation, whitening and spot removal.

Basic principle of action: Bromelain can act on the aging stratum corneum on human skin, promote its degradation, decomposition, removal, promote skin metabolism, and reduce the skin color darkening caused by sun exposure. Make the skin care in a good white and tender state.

In this way, the utilization value of pineapple is indeed high, not only rich in nutrition, sweet taste can also extract bromelain, bromelain not only has a high medicinal value, but also a particularly good beauty whitening effect, in the beauty industry is a very popular one. It can be said that pineapple is a treasure all over the body.



We look forward to working with you to develop cost effective products and long term relationships with mutual benefit.
