FAQs About Pineapples 

If these recipes have got you excited about using pineapples in your smoothies, you’re probably keen to know more about their nutritional benefits.

Here are some key facts about pineapples and answers to some of the common questions about this fruit. 

Is pineapple acidic or alkaline?

Pineapple has a pH value of between 3.2 and 4 and is classed as very acidic. Pineapple juice tends to fall around 3.5 on the pH scale, which means that some varieties of pineapple are slightly less acidic than their juice counterparts.

Because of its pH value, pineapple can cause discomfort after eating if you have acid reflux.

Although pineapple is highly acidic, it’s not actually the most acidic fruit. Both lemons and limes are more acidic and generally fall below 3 on the pH scale.

Are pineapples citrus?

People often think of pineapple as a citrus fruit but it’s part of the Bromeliaceae family.

It does contain citric acid, as do plenty of citrus fruits. 

This isn’t a bad thing as it can help to protect against the formation of kidney stones.

Are pineapples good for weight loss?

Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which has anti inflammatory properties.

There is often a link between inflammation and being overweight, which is one reason why eating anti inflammatory pineapple regularly can help to keep your weight under control.

Are pineapples high in potassium?

A cup of pineapple contains around 180 mg of potassium. This isn’t particularly high compared to bananas, which contain around 358 mg

The recommended daily amount of potassium is 4,700 mg. Including pineapple in your smoothies will help to reach this amount but you’ll also need to add other foods that contain a reasonable amount of potassium such as banana and apricot.  

Are pineapples high in oxalates?

According to the University of Michigan, pineapple contain some oxalates but aren’t particularly high in them.

Some fruits are considered to be high in oxalates and can have more than 10 mg of oxalates in a serving but pineapple generally contain less than 10 mg of oxalates per serving.

Oxalates are linked to the formation of kidney stones and it’s recommended that you don’t consume more than 50 mg of them per day if you want to protect yourself against kidney stones.

Are pineapples high in vitamin K?

For every 100g of pineapple, you’ll get 0.7 µg of vitamin K. This isn’t particularly high, especially compared to blueberries, which have over 19 µg of vitamin K per 100g.

Dark leafy greens are a good source of vitamin K. Adding pineapple to green smoothies can help you to get more vitamin K into your diet.

If you can include blueberries too, you’ll get even more vitamin K from your smoothies.

Are pineapples safe to eat during pregnancy?

You may have heard that pineapple should be avoided while you’re pregnant because it may bring on uterine contractions and early labor but fortunately, this is a big myth (unless you eat an awful lot of it!).

It is bromelain supplements that can potentially cause problems but these contain a lot more bromelain than you’ll find in the average serving of pineapple.

You probably won’t want to be eating pineapple every single day of your pregnancy but enjoying a pineapple smoothie once or twice a week isn’t believed to be dangerous and there isn’t any scientific evidence to say that you should stay clear of it.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommend eating vitamin C rich foods during pregnancy.

Pineapples are a good source of vitamin C and contain almost 79 mg per cup.

You can boost your vitamin C intake by including oranges (or orange juice), mango, papaya, grapefruit, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in your pineapple smoothies.
