    Pineapple Nutrition: Pineapple is one of the healthiest fruits even though it is mid to high on the glycemic index, 59 ± 8. Raw pineapple has 11.2 grams of net carbs per 100 grams. Pineapple is very rich in vitamin C and manganese, and serves to strengthen the immune system and absorption of iron. Pineapple is loaded with antioxidants, phenolic acid, and the enzyme bromelain.
