The hack involves cutting the pineapple in half and then peeling pieces from the body of the fruit, which is the perfect bite-sized portion.

The Doctors note that the pineapple used in the viral video was very ripe and also a specific type of the fruit from Brazil, and say that most types of pineapple might not be as easy to peel, as ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork, unfortunately, finds out on stage. Regardless of how you eat the fruit, in just one serving of pineapple, you get 131 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C. So whether you try the viral hack or stick to the traditional way, pineapple is a healthy food option you might want to consider adding to your daily diet.
