Fresh Pineapple Fruits
FrutPlanet is a global exporter of fruits, vegetables, spices, and more. One of the fruits we export is pineapples.
Colour: At the top of our consideration is the colour of the pineapple. Usually, fresh pineapple fruits have healthy green leaves and a greenish-yellow hue. A pineapple changes from green to yellow as it ripens; the yellow colouring indicates that the fruit is ripe. The FrutPlanet team is keen on the colour of the fruit before harvest.
Shell: Our experts have been examining fruits for years, therefore, accumulated a lot of experience. One quick feature that we examine is the texture of its skin or shell. A mature and ripe pineapple has a firm but soft shell. It can hardly squeeze because the fibre is mature and full of juice. FrutPlanet commits to delivering only quality pineapples.
Smell: A ripe, good-tasting fresh pineapple fruit has a unique scent. The smell is similar to a ripe mango fruit but a little distinguished. The smell often emanates from the lower bottom of the fruit. Otherwise, you’re less likely to feel any smell if the fruit is not ripe. Our team is obsessed with the scent of ripe pineapple and can easily set them apart. Be sure to receive fresh, unique-smelling fruits.
Size and Weight: Without a doubt, the ripe fresh pineapple fruit is heavier because of the enormous juice it possesses. When harvesting the fruits, our team takes critical notice of the weight of the fruit and its comparative size. We are keen on your specifications at this point. Some of our clients love medium but heavy pineapples. You can state your specifications by requesting a quote.
Contains Manganese: This is one of the essential minerals in the body. Manganese plays a role in your metabolic process, blood clotting, and the formation of bones. Experts indicate that a cup of blended pineapple juice has more than the amount of manganese the body needs daily. It’s one of the best fruits to include in your everyday meal.
Boost Digestion: Fresh pineapple fruit is one of the best-known sources of bromelain, an essential enzyme in protein digestion. One use of pineapple is meat tenderising. That level of bromelain keeps your digestive system clean and the absorption process effortless.
Boosts Immunity by Suppressing Inflammation: Besides helping digestion, bromelain enzyme improves the body’s immunity and reduces inflammation. Research on 9-year-olds shows that eating pineapples lowers the risk of viral and bacterial infections. In addition, the kids who ate the fresh pineapple fruit had a four times increase in white blood cells. The fruit’s anti-inflammatory properties are one of the easiest ways to enhance the body’s immune system.
Eases Arthritis: There’s no doubt that arthritis affects many people worldwide, and even though there are several varieties, the common symptom is inflammation. On the other hand, fresh pineapple fruits have bromelain enzymes, and one of its primary functions is relieving the body of inflammation. A study has shown that the pineapple’s bromelain eases osteoarthritis pain. It relieves pain by reducing the degradation of the cartilage.
Reduces Risk of Cancer: Cancerous cells are known to grow uncontrollably. Experts indicate that the condition worsens due to oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. But pineapple has compounds and antioxidants, including bromelain, that help minimise the risk. Scientists are still researching bromelain’s anti-cancer effects.
Has Disease-Fighting Antioxidants: A fresh pineapple fruit has antioxidants that are crucial in helping the body eliminate oxidative stress. Usually, this kind of stress results from too many radicals and unstable molecules that end up damaging the cell. Oxidative stress results in chronic inflammation, heart disease, diabetes, etc. Some of the antioxidants in fresh pineapple fruit include flavonoids and phenolics.
We follow several grading standards, but the process considers size, shape, and maturity. We first eliminate any pineapple that has visible skin diseases or blemishes. The grading classes include A (over 1.5kg), B (1 -1.5kg), C (0.8-1kg), and D (less than 0.8kg).
We conduct various pre and after-harvesting tests using equipment such as a penetrometer to measure the firmness of the fruit, weighing the balance fo the weight, and plastic rings for the sizes.
We transport the pineapples in wooden boxes and crates to ensure they do not have any blemishes or cuttings on delivery to our packhouse. We then re-examine the fruits for sunscald, insect infestation, deformation, and other unattractive physical characteristics.
The pineapples are then cleaned and disinfected from pathogens. We invite KEPHIS and other relevant authorities to certify and proceed to pack.
We pack the pineapples into a fibreboard or wooden boxes. We pack them with crowns for prolonged shelf life. The packing can be either horizontal or vertical packing. Labelling the boxes is essential and involves details such as product name, variety, grade, origin, date of packing, name of exporter, number of fruits in the box, and other relevant information.
