today i learned – mon 13th mar 2017

i think today’s random little learning might be pretty short 😳 but you know, here goes anyway!

#tdil that, as you eat a pineapple, it actually eats you right back! 😬 how mental is that?!

want to know the science behind that little statement? well, have you ever noticed that when you eat lots of pineapple it starts to make your tongue sore?Β 

that’s because there’s an enzyme in pineapple named bromelain that breaks down protein … so, as you eat pineapple, it breaks down the proteins in your mouth! 😳 #leavemyproteinsaloneyo.

a slightly more purposeful use of this enzyme is to tenderise steak πŸ‘πŸ» the enzyme breaks down the complex proteins in steak to make it all tasty and stuff 😱😍

and that’s that i guess! πŸ™ˆ i told this one would be pretty short … just another random useless fact that you can use to make great steak or tell all your mates when they moan that their tongue hurts πŸ‘πŸ»

you’re welcome πŸ™‚ #tdil


(today’s image comes courtesy of ‘how things work’ and an article all about tenderising steak πŸ‘πŸ» it’s a pretty good read tbh. see it –>here<–)
