     I have this terrible craving for pineapple juice all of a sudden!  Now I KNOW for a fact I am not pregnant..lol.  However, I am flaring.  I read where it contains bromide which may be beneficial for inflammation.  So, I am sitting here drinking a nice tall glass of 100% pure pineapple juice.  Hope no one has had a bad reaction to this while flaring.  Guess I will soon find out.

The only reaction you might get is looser stool because of it being fruit juice....but as you know...I wouldn't say it would cause you any harm with your UC.

You can also purchase bromelain capsules....

Pineapple is good for the digestive system. It should be fresh pineapple, not canned or juiced, which can result in diarrhea.

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

I eat fresh pineapple every day, love it, have no issues with it at all...though I would caution to anyone that isn't used to having it in their system to always go slow (a small glass) then see how things go...good luck Christine, I hope you find it helpful and not harmful.

well I can tell you I've been drinking plenty of pineapple juice lately, in the form of French Martinis (vodka, chambord, pineapple juice) & it hasn't caused me any gastric distress whatsoever! Just plain old Dole pineapple juice, or the juice drained from a can of pineapple chunks. Plus I eat a fair amount of it too, with no issues.

     Eva Lou....my script on the 6MP says to stay away from alcohol.  Watch that liver!

huh- I guess I haven't read my patient info sheet too well! I have maybe 1-2 drinks a week, so I think I'm ok. I do notice that they tend to hit me more the next day though, probably from all the meds my liver has to metabolize. The added alcohol doesn't help!

Yah. I'm very sensitive to fructose. That's why I can't have canned or juiced pineapple. Fresh pineapple is okay though. It's quite safe.

     On the can, it doesn't mention fructose...it says 100% pure pineapple juice.  Of course it has water in it though.  No mention of any other sweetener either.

Fructose isn't an added ingredient. It's in the pineapple.

I'm fructose intolerant; so I'm not supposed to eat/drink dried fruits, canned fruits, or fruit juices. I'm not sure of the details as to why.

Also, apparently, heat used in canning destroys some of the Bromelain. How much, I don't know.
