Zucchini – A Super Squash

Zucchini is a squash that has its origin in America and a subtle taste, soft covering and buttery white flesh. Almost all the parts of this squash are edible, including the flesh, seeds and even the skin. A single cup of zucchini has about 33 calories and zero grams of fat. Zucchini is:

  • High in B vitamins, including folate, vitamin B6 and riboflavin.
  • Has high water content and is rich in fiber.
  • Low in saturated fat and sodium, and very low in cholesterol.
  • One medium zucchini has over 50 percent of your daily vitamin C needs.

Baked into breads, casseroles or meatloaf, zucchini adds a savory healthy flavor. Sprinkled over salads or soups, or as an ingredient in prepared foods, zucchini can be a welcome addition to your new consumer products.
