About Butternut Squash

  • Butternut squash contains many antioxidants and vitamins. It contains no saturated fats or cholestrol, however, it is a rich source of dietary fiber. It is often recommended by dieticians in the cholesterol controlling and weight reduction programs.
  • Seeds from the squash are an excellent source of dietary fiber and fatty acids that aid in heart health.
  • You should buy fresh whole butternut squash instead of its cut sections. Look for a mature produce that features a fine woody note on tapping and heavy in hand. Its stem should be stout and firmly attached. Avoid those with wrinkled ski, spots, cuts and bruises.
  • Almost all the parts of the plant are edible including the leaves and flowers.
