#30: Carnivore Pineapple
Pineapples contain an enzyme called bromelain, which is known for its ability to break down proteins. This enzyme is so effective at protein digestion that it’s often used as a meat tenderizer in cooking. When you consume pineapple, the bromelain can indeed start to break down proteins, including those found in your mouth and on your tongue.
This might give you a tingling sensation, but it’s not a harmful process. In fact, bromelain is known for its potential health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and aiding in digestion. So, while pineapples do contain a chemical that can digest meat and proteins, it’s a natural part of the fruit’s composition and contributes to its unique flavor and potential health advantages.
