Pineapples used by Brazilian researchers to speed wound healing

Brazilian researchers are developing an innovative process to use pineapples to speed the healing process for skin wounds. Pineapples, which are native to Brazil, contain bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory. The Brazilian researchers have infused bromelain into nanocellulose, which can then be placed over skin wounds. The nanocellulose itself is produced using bacteria fed by fruit waste. The innovation is in the initial stages of development as a medicine for use on humans.
