Christopher Columbus is credited with discovering the pineapple on the island of Guadeloupe in 1493, though the fruit had long been enjoyed in South America. Since then, it has come to symbolise everything from affluence to hospitality to friendship, with a recent revival as a hip, fashionable fruit. Dried pineapple chips are like nature's candy; full of natural sweetness and tang, and perfect for adding to teas, sauces, snack mixes, baking and more. High in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes (bromelain in particular), pineapple is said to enhance immunity, digestion, appearance and general wellbeing.
