The amount of calories in fresh pineapple or calories in whole pineapple can vary. It’s simple to work out, and very important for proper nutrition. The calories in pineapple are roughly the same for each type of pineapple, even though they can taste a bit differently. You can read more on the common types of pineapple here.
How to work out the calories in a pineapple
To start working out the calories in pineapple, the most important thing is to understand how much (in weight) you are eating.
Every 100g of juicy pineapple usually contains 50 calories, and is mainly made up from 13 grams of carbohydrates (of which around 10 grams will be sugar, and 2 grams dietary fiber).
There are 50 Calories in Pineapple per 100g
To give you an idea, most whole pineapples weigh around 1kg (which is the same as 35 ounces). So the amount of calories in a whole fresh pineapple is around 500kcal.
Of course, PineapplesInfo highly recommends you learn how to cut a pineapple properly, because eating the rind is, firstly, not nice at all and secondly, will ruin your macros here.
Snacking on pineapple chunks is a very good solution when you get a craving for sweetness. The sharp flavor will do a lot to stop you craving processed sugar. Even eating a whole pineapple, at 1kg and 500kcal, in a single sitting is forgiveable.
Working out how many calories are in pineapple chunks or pineapple slices is pretty much the same as the method above – estimate the weight based on how much you consume and how much it says in the packaging.
