Pumpkin's Nutrients

Pumpkin's orange pulp is a healthy way to add nutrients to family meals. Rich in vitamin A and fiber, it also contains the carotenoids beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and lutein. These nutrients protect the body from heart disease, cancer, and vision loss. In addition to traditional pumpkin pies, this fleshy gourd can be used as an ingredient in smoothies, flans, breads, soups, stews, and chili. What a versatile and tasty food for health!
