Butternut squash nutritional information
Butternut squash have only
about two-thirds the calories, pound per pound, as potatoes, but
otherwise they're relatively similar in the macronutrient
category. Protein makes up 9 to 10% of the calories, and the rest
of the calories come primarily from sugars and starches. Despite
what I read in Gardening
for Maximum Nutrition,
though, the USDA
shows butternuts trumping white potatoes in three-quarters of the
vitamins and minerals measured. If you're going to eat a
vegetable that's primarily starch, butternut isn't a bad choice.
Plus, we just plain love them.
