Ananas Comosus, kingdom of plantae, and family of bromeliaceae. Bromeliads produce edible fruit extremely rare, Ananas Comosus is the only available edible bromeliad today. Ananas Comosus, a remarkable fruit and also known as Pineapple, named for its resemblance to the pine cone. Each pineapple are actually made up of dozens of individual flowerets that grow together to form the entire fruit. It has a lush, sweet and exotic flavor, but may be one of the most healthful foods available, pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis. Pineapple is high in manganese. Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple’s value. Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots. Pineapple is also good for preventing constipation, and can cure different inflammatory diseases. In this study we try to mix ampalaya and pineapple to create a bitter, sweet and sour flavor, to be able to cure different kinds of diseases.
