About This Food

Description

Acorn squash is a starchy vegetable that has a naturally sweet flavor. It is considered a winter squash, but will last months after being harvested. Predominantly, it is a great source of fiber, which helps promote gastrointestinal health and reduces your risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Acorn squash is packed with vitamin A and vitamin C - antioxidants that boost the system and can improve eye and skin health. The high levels of potassium and magnesium found in acorn squash can help to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.
