How Salt Can Help Your Pineapple in Odd Ways

There's nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a piece of juicy pineapple to soothe your senses and relieve your thirst now that summer is officially here. 

While pineapple is usually eaten whole or in a glass, it also goes well with meat and is surprisingly tasty when cooked over an open flame. 

When pineapple is consumed, it provides a host of health benefits in addition to its enticing flavor. 

Even the pineapple core is a nutritional powerhouse, with nearly a full day's worth of vitamin C in a single meal.

According to Dr. Tunick, soaking your pineapple in a saltwater solution causes the bromelain enzyme to break down, and by the time you eat a piece, the enzyme will be inactive. 

While no specific ratios for how much or what kind of salt to use are given, Dr. Tunick claims that one teaspoon of salt in one cup of water is sufficient.
