Our dried pineapples are an all-natural, tropically sweet and invigorating treat. Fresh pineapples can often be pricey and disappointing in flavour, depending on where you live. Bring home the taste of the tropics with these beautifully rich and soft-textured slices. None of the pineapple hassle with 100% of all the pineapple flavour! No sulphur dioxide. No nonsense! It's a go-to energizing and healthy snack that will help you conquer those hills while exploring the outdoors. And an equally versatile ingredient in salads, desserts... and just about everything in between!
We buy fresh pineapple in the Philippines, export it to the Middle East for cutting, drying and packaging. It’s then imported here to Canada via the Pineapple Express. The secret to our pineapple success? We make sure the pineapple is ripened for a few weeks before it’s processed for drying. This way, the sweetness comes through to perfection. Pineapple perfection means adding just a small amount of sugar which helps soften the fruit. And as we are possibly the world’s premier pineapple perfectionists, we don’t want a tough and chewy product for our pineapple-buying peeps. This delicious tropical fruit has been prized for centuries not only for the unique taste and texture, but also for the myriad of health benefits. A wealth of micronutrients, vitamins, minerals and of course fibre, a diet rich in dried pineapple can help with arthritis management, improve immune system function, aid tissue and cellular health and digestion, is great for coughs and colds, bone health, oral health last but not least, helps prevent cancer. Big pharma would put pineapple in a bottle, if they could.
