THE FEASIBILITY OF PINEAPPLE
(ANANAS COMOSUS) PEEL
AS AN ALTERNATIVE
CHAPTER I: INTRODUCTION
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. We, the researchers, chose this as their project to prove that Pineapple peelings have other uses. We, 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. We, the researchers, wanted to prove that nothing in this world is useless and peelings count as useful materials too, and can somehow help ...view middle of the document...
In this study, we, the researchers, has two hypothesis which are stated bellow:
* Is pineapple (ananas comosus) can be an alternative source in making vinegar?
* Is pineapple (ananas comosus) cannot be an alternative source in making vinegar?
D. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
We, 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. It makes our study important because the root and fruit are either eaten or applied topically as an anti-inflammatory and as a proteolytic agent. It is traditionally used as an antihelminthic agent in the Philippines. A root decoction is used to treat diarrhea.
E. SCOPE AND LIMITATION
We want to include in my study the other parts of the Pineapple that has extract so that we will determine which part have more extract .And also we will statistical test used to determine the possible limitations of the finding. 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.
F. DEFINITION OF TERMS
PINEAPPLE (Ananas comosus)
- 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.
