Pineapple Juice is a sweet, yellow-coloured juice squeezed from pineapples: not from the whole pineapple, but from the trimmings after the pineapple is cut for canning. It can be bought sweetened or unsweetened, in cans, bottles, as a frozen concentrate or as a powder.
Sometimes sugar, water and preservatives are added to the canned juice. Check the label if you need to know.
It can be drunk straight up, or used in baking or cooking, or used in mixed drinks, in which it is very popular.
The two most popular brands are Dole and Del Monte.
The bromelain in fresh and frozen Pineapple Juice means that you can't use it in recipes containing gelatin: the enzyme will break down the proteins in the gelatin, and your jelly dish will never set. You can, however, use canned, powdered or bottled Pineapple Juice.
Canned pineapple pieces and slices are packed in Pineapple Juice; this shouldn't be wasted. Either use in your recipe or freeze until needed. You may think of recipes that call for water that you can swap the Pineapple Juice in for.
Literature & Lore
The American actor W.C. Fields (1879 - 1946) often kept a thermos with him on film sets which he claimed was filled with Pineapple Juice. When someone actually swapped the contents (which was alcohol) with Pineapple Juice, he shouted ""Somebody put Pineapple Juice in my Pineapple Juice!"
