Origin: North America
Pumpkin is a squash native to North America with a rich history dating back to 7000 B.C. Popular during the fall season, pumpkins are usually round with a waxy, thick orange shell containing seeds and pulp. Pumpkins are one of the United State’s most popular foods, with nearly 1.5 billion pounds produced each year.
Pumpkins get their orange color from carotenoid pigments, including provitamin A compounds such as beta-cryptoxanthin, alpha and beta carotene, which convert to vitamin A once in the body.
Pumpkins contain healthy unsaturated fats, mostly found in the seeds. Those pumpkin seeds also contain the omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. Other nutrients found in pumpkins include fiber and zinc.
