Butternut Squash  Cucurbita moschata
A nutrient dense source of vitamin A, phytonutrients and antioxidants. The flesh of butternut squash gets its orange color from beta carotene, which the body converts to retinol, or vitamin A.

Rich in beta-cryptoxanthin which heals and restores the lungs.

Consume with oil because it increases the bio-availability of the carotenoids.

Lowers heart attack and stroke risk due to the properties that prevent the oxidation of cholesterol in the body.

1 cup contains 457% of vitamin A RDA and 52% of vitamin C RDA.

A great restorative for the body when healing from illness; it is nutrient dense and is high in potassium.

Conventional butternut squash contains relatively low levels of pesticide residue.

Select a heavy fruit with smooth skin.

Native to Central America.
