Pineapple peel drink with ginger. Don't throw away your pineapple peel; use it to make a light and refreshing drink or tea. When you boiled the pineapple peel, you destroyed all the nutrients and enzymes.
Pineapple contains a proteolyic enzyme bromelain, which digests food by breaking down protein. Bromelain is found mostly in the stems and skin of pineapples and is available as a dietary supplement.
