Anyone who has tasted fresh pineapple remembers how difficult the sensations fell on the lips and tongue, especially if you eat a lot of pineapples. This is due to the fact that pineapple contains a lot of the enzyme bromelain, which literally “corrodes” the tongue.
Bromelain has the ability to break down proteins. It aids digestion by making it easier for the body to absorb protein foods. Even if you add fresh pineapple juice to the steak, the meat will become tender and tender very quickly.
But with such activity, it is impossible to eat too many pineapples, because, under the influence of bromelain, the tongue simply begins to be digested by this enzyme. Fortunately, the cells of the tongue recover very quickly and there is no threat of swallowing pieces of your own tongue along with pineapple.
