    With its golden orange skin and tropical flavor, pineapple is considered the king of fruit. It's low in calories, fat, and sodium, and has an exceptionally sweet taste. People from all over the world eat pineapple for dessert. Due to its high fiber content, this fruit keeps them full and improves digestion.
