Energy value:

  • proteins - 1.2 g
  • Fat - 0.2 g
  • carbohydrates - 3.84 g
  • Only 18 kcal

Benefit:

The UFO-shaped squash in fresh form contains significantly more vitamin A (217 IU) than its oblong fellow zucchini. Responsible for DNA synthesis and cell division folates - vitamins PP and B6 (30 mg) - also in a significant plus.

Even in cooked form, the squash does not contain harmful salts, cholesterol and saturated fat, but 43% will charge you with the daily rate of vitamin C and will gladly add your five kopecks to the daily allowance of magnesium, potassium and fiber.

However, people who suffer from kidney failure and gallbladder problems should not abuse this vegetable. According to recent studies, the oxalate contained in it prevents the proper absorption of calcium, which tends to be deposited on the joints, which entails oh how many bad effects.

Here, perhaps, the only contraindication. In other cases, summer pumpkin will be an excellent alternative to such all-season zucchini, and its pleasant creamy texture will perfectly complement vegetable stew, and soup, and salad and will be a good base for pancakes.
