  • Nutrition Tip

    With their rich, orange flesh, winter squashes contain more carotenoids (a type of phytonutrient) and more vitamins and minerals than summer squashes.

    Just one half cup serving of winter squash is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, manganese, potassium and fiber. Winter squashes contain beta-carotene, a type of carotenoid that may be helpful in the prevention of some types of cancers.
