Pineapple contains bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Interestingly, the bromelain is most concentrated in the core of the pineapple. A pineapple core contains 50mg of bromelain! Go figure, the part that we throw away!

So, I have been saving the cores of my pineapples in the freezer and using in smoothies and in my latest creation: Pineapple Core Ice Cubes.
