Name:  Bromelain

Synonyms:  Bromelin

CAS Number:  9001-00-7

EINECS:  232-572-4

Bromelain can refer to one of two protease enzymes extracted from the plant family Bromeliaceae, or Bromelin can refer to a combination of those enzymes along with other compounds produced in an extract. Bromelain is present in all parts of the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus), but the stem is the most common commercial source, presumably because Bromelin is readily available after the fruit has been harvested. Pineapples have had a long tradition as a medicinal plant among the natives of South and Central America. However, just eating pineapple will not give you a great deal of extra bromelain, because Bromelin is most highly concentrated in the stem, which is not nearly as tasty (albeit still edible).
