A. Background of the Study
A Pineapple is a fruit wherein you have to peel off the peelings to eat it, like any other fruits. The researchers chose this as their project to prove that Pineapple peelings have other uses. The researchers also noticed that the families in our country are very practical nowadays. Instead of throwing the peelings away, many families can earn something from it by using our experiment. They can produce a product and maybe start a business or they can produce it for their own use. The researchers wanted to prove that nothing in this world is useless and peelings count as useful materials too, and can somehow help people to use their creative minds to make things possible out of such wastes.
B. Statement of the Problem
Our country is experiencing economic crisis and many Filipinos do not have stable jobs. Our problem in waste management also has a huge impact on why the researchers chose this study to begin with. The wastes in market says it all.
-To collect most of the peelings from Pineapple vendors and turn it into a vinegar that can be used in cooking or can be the start of a business. -To teach the vendors how to make vinegar out of peelings so that they can earn extra income.
D. Significance of the Study
The researchers find this study significant in a way that it can be a key to help families earn extra income if the process is performed well. With this study, people will be able to make their own vinegar and save enough money from buying vinegar every now and then.
E. Scope and Delimitation
This study was delimited to the preparation and implementation in a way that we only used specific fruit peelings. Namely the Pineapple peelings, we do not have any back up peelings for our study purposes. This study was also delimited to evaluation because it was confined to the responses of the student and the teachers. This study covers the use of Pineapple peelings that can be useful in both livelihood and environment-friendly aspects.
A. Materials and Equipments
Pineapple Peelings which can be found in markets and from stall vendors. – Sugar – Bottles – Strainer – Yeast – Water – Knife
1. Wash the peelings thoroughly.
2. Cut into cubes; transfer into a casserole and add enough water to cover.
3. Let it boil.
4. Strain and let cool to lukewarm.
5. Prepare all the needed containers.
6. For every four cups of juice, add 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon yeast
7. Leave small amount of peelings into the juice
8. Fill into the bottles and ferment, do not disturb.
9. After a week, remove the peelings and add the vinegar starter.
10. Ferment for another week.
11. After 3 weeks, the product is available
Results and Discussions
After many trials and errors, our product became a vinegar. The scent of pineapple was still present and the taste was very similar to the vinegar that can be sold from the market. The researchers used two models to represent the study. The first one contains Pineapple Peelings and the other one does not have. The duration of the Fermentation process was exactly the same. In both models, the researchers added vinegar starter to make it more appealing to the smell and at the same time convincing. At the first week, the yeast started to settle at the bottom. The researchers did not mind it because it is part of the experimentation.
B. Analysis of Data
The researchers observed that Pineapple peelings can be made into vinegar. The researchers’ objective was pointed out and was implemented. The vinegar that is made from the extract of pineapple peeling can now be used as a substitute for the commercialized vinegar we often use.
pineapple peelings as vinegar
-The pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a tropical plant and fruit(multiple), native to Uruguay, Brazil, and Paraguay. It is a medium tall (1–1.5 m) herbaceous perennial plant with 30 or more trough-shaped and pointed leaves 30–100 cm long, surrounding a thick stem. The pineapple is an example of a multiple fruit: multiple, spirally-arranged flowers along the axis each produce a fleshy fruit that becomes pressed against the fruits of adjacent flowers, forming what appears to be a single fleshy fruit. The leaves of thecultivar ‘Smooth Cayenne’ mostly lack spines except at the leaf tip, but the cultivars ‘Spanish’ and ‘Queen’ have large spines along the leaf margins. Pineapples are the only bromeliad fruit in widespread cultivation. It is one of the most commercially important plants which carry out Crassulacean acid metabolism, or CAM photosynthesis.
-we all know that our country today are suffering crisis.That was the reason why I want to launch this study,cause I want to help our community to be useful.The Pineapple is a very popular fruit in many tropical parts of the world.The fruitlets of a pineapple are arranged in two interlocking spirals, eight spirals in one direction, thirteen in the other; each being a Fibonacci number. This is one of many examples of Fibonacci numbers appearing in nature.
*Statement of the Problem*
-Does the peeling of pineapple(Ananas comosus) can be made as vinegar?
-If I use the peelings of pineapple as vinegar,it can be useful to our community because it contains a proteolytic enzyme bromelain, which digests food by breaking down protein. Pineapple juice can thus be used as a marinade and tenderizer for meat. The enzymes in pineapples can interfere with the preparation of some foods, such as jelly or other gelatin-based desserts. These enzymes can be hazardous to someone suffering from certain protein deficiencies or disorders, such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
*Significance of the Study*
-It makes my study important because the root and fruit are either eaten or applied topically as an anti-inflammatory and as aproteolytic agent. It is traditionally used as an antihelminthicagent in the Philippines.A root decoction is used to treat diarrhea.
*Scope and Limitations*
-I want to include in my study the other parts of the Pineapple that has extract so that I will determine which part have more extract .And also I will statistical test used to determine the possible limitations of the finding.
*Definition of Terms*
– is an example of a multiple fruit: multiple, spirally-arranged flowers along the axis each produce a fleshy fruit that becomes pressed against the fruits of adjacent flowers, forming what appears to be a single fleshy fruit.
– is a liquid processed from the fermentation of ethanol in a process that yields its key ingredient, acetic acid.
*Review of Related Literature*
-In the USA in 1986, the Pineapple Research Institute was dissolved and its assets were divided between Del Monte and Maui Land and Pineapple. Del Monte took 73-114, which it dubbed MD-2, to its plantations in Costa Rica, found it to be well-suited to growing there, and launched it publicly in 1996. (Del Monte also began marketing 73-50, dubbed CO-2, as Del Monte Gold). In 1997, Del Monte began marketing its Gold Extra Sweet pineapple, known internally as MD-2. MD-2 is a hybrid that originated in the breeding program of the now-defunct Pineapple Research Institute in Hawaii, which conducted research on behalf of Del Monte, Maui Land & Pineapple Company, and Dole.
-Southeast Asia dominates world production: in 2001 Thailandproduced 1.979 million tons, the Philippines 1.618 million tons while in the Americas, Brazil 1.43 million tons. Total world production in 2001 was 14.220 million tons. The primary exporters of fresh pineapples in 2001 were Costa Rica, 322,000 tons; Côte d’Ivoire, 188,000 tons; and the Philippines, 135,000 tons.In commercial farming, flowering can be artificially induced and the early harvesting of the main fruit can encourage the development of a second crop of smaller fruits.
a.) Materials & Equipment
b.) TREATMENT/GENERAL PROCEDURE
1. Wash peels before chopping finely.
2.Add enough water to cover and boil.
3.Strain and let cool to lukewarm.
4. For every 4 cups of juice add 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 tsp. yeast. 5. Fill into bottles and cover with cheese cloth or tissue paper.
*Result and Discussion*
-I observed that the Pineapple peelings can be made as vinegar and it is useful to our community.Because it is affordable and Pineapple can be easily found in tropical areas like Philippines.
-There fore I conclude that the Pineapple peelings can be made as vinegar and it is affordable like any other vinegars and also it is effective.
