Just one cup of sweet, refreshing pineapple supplies 76.5% of the daily-recommended amount of manganese—a trace mineral essential for generating energy and antioxidants. Pineapple also contains vitamin C, which supports immunity. Additionally, pineapple soothes digestion and provides anti-inflammatory benefits. To prep a pineapple for your Blast, peel the tough outer layer and cut flesh away from the core.

Selection Process

Ripe pineapple will smell sweetly fragrant at its base. Choose fruits that seem heavy for their size. While there is generally no difference in quality between smaller and larger fruits, their density indicates juiciness. Make sure your pineapple is ripe when you pur- chase it; it will not ripen further after it has been picked.
