Canned Pineapple

Canned Pineapple
  • Canned foods often provide needed nutrients at a lower cost than fresh, frozen and dried forms, particularly when price, waste and time to prepare are considered.
  • Canned pineapple is an affordable, convenient and easy way to get fruit into your diet ear-round.

 

  • All forms - canned, fresh, frozen, dried and 100% juice - of fruits and vegetables provide needed nutrients that make up a healthy diet.
  • From a nutrition and sensory standpoint, recipes prepared with canned ingredients and those prepared using cooked fresh and/or frozen ingredients rate comparably.

 

Quick Tips for Using Canned Pineapple

  • Make a colorful and classic fruit compote by combining canned, drained pineapple chunks, fresh seedless red and green grapes and slivers of dried apricots.  Lightly douse the fruits with pineapple juice that is drained from the can.
  • Freeze one can of crushed pineapple in juice until solid and then blend with any low-fat yogurt.  Add ice and other fruits to your liking.
  • Top frozen yogurt, cottage cheese, waffles, salads and even pork, chicken or salmon with canned pineapple.
