    BUTTERNUT SQUASH HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    Butternut Squash (Cucurbita moschata) is also known as Gooseneck Squash, Hubbard Squash, Butternut Pumpkin in Australia and New Zealand, Butana in Sri Lanki. It is a type of winter squash and is an excellent source of vitamin A, beta carotenes and carotenoids as well as fiber, vitamin C, manganese, magnesium, vitamin E and potassium. This information is about Butternut Squash and not Butternut Tree, which is a type of white walnut tree.

    The butternut squash grows on a vine and has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has tan-yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds in the bottom. When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange and becomes sweeter and richer.

    HISTORY

    Butternut Squash is a hybrid of Gooseneck Squash crossed with Hubbard Squash by Charles Legget in 1940's Stow, Massachusetts. The most popular variety, the Waltham Butternut, originated in Waltham, Massachusetts, where it was developed at the Waltham Experiment Station by Robert E. Young. Dorothy Leggett claims that the Waltham Butternut Squash was developed during the 1940s by her late husband, Charles, and then subsequently introduced by him to the researchers at the Waltham Field Station. She also claimed that the name came from ":smooth as butter, sweet as nut".

    BUTTERNUT USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    CULINARY USES

    Although technically a fruit, butternut squash is used as a vegetable that can be roasted, sauteed, toasted, pureed for soups such as squash soup, or mashed to be used in casseroles, breads and muffins. It can be used like pumpkin in squash pie and served with whipped cream or ice cream on the side for dessert.

    When choosing butternut squash, choose those that are heavy for their size and have a hard, smooth rind that is free of blemishes. The thick skin means that butternut squash can be stored for long periods without needing refrigeration. Butternut squash pairs well with a diverse range of flavors including cinnamon, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, and smoked paprika. Here are some quick tips:
    • Cut the squash in half, add brown sugar, vanilla extract, and toasted pecans, and bake.
    • Add butternut squash to a vegetable soup.
    • Serve mashed as a substitute for potatoes.
    • Use as a substitute in any recipe that calls for pureed or canned pumpkin.
    One of the most common ways to prepare butternut squash is roasting. To do this, the squash is cut in half lengthwise, lightly brushed with cooking oil or put in a thin layer of water and placed cut side down on a baking sheet. It is then baked for 45 minutes or until soft. Once roasted, it can be eaten in a variety of ways.

    The fruit is prepared by removing the skin, stalk, and seeds, which are not usually eaten or cooked. However, the seeds are edible, either raw or roasted, and the skin is also edible and softens when roasted.

  • Australia: In Australia, it is regarded as a pumpkin, and is used interchangeably with other types of pumpkin.
  • South Africa: In South Africa, butternut squash is commonly used and often prepared as a soup or grilled whole. Grilled butternut is typically seasoned with spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon or stuffed (e.g. spinach and feta) before being wrapped in foil and grilled. Grilled butternut is often served as a side dish to braais (barbecues) and the soup as a starter dish.
  • New Zealand: Butternuts were introduced commercially in New Zealand in the 1950s by brothers Arthur and David Harrison who were nurserymen and market gardeners in Otaki.


  • The following recipes for butternut squash have all been made to add delicious to your humdrum meals.

    Ingredients:
      1 pound Butternut Squash, diced
      1 tablespoons Olive Oil
      1 cup Arborio Rice
      About 1/3 cup Dry White Wine (Chardonnay)
      1/2 large Onion, finely chopped

    butternut squash chipotle chili


    CHIPOTLE BUTTERNUT SQUASH CHILI
    Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 1 hour 20 minutes. Total time: 1 hour 35 minutes.
    Serves: 6 to 8 servings.

    Ingredients
      2 tablespoons Olive Oil
      1 medium Red Onion, chopped
      1 red Bell Pepper, diced
      1 to 2 Jalapenos, seeded and diced (add more for increased heat)
      1 1/2 tablespoons minced Garlic
      3/4 cup Coffee
      1 cup Vegetable or Chicken Broth
      1 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
      1/2 tablespoon Smoked Paprika
      2 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
      1 teaspoon Chili Powder (more or less, depending on personal taste)
      1 tablespoon ground Cumin
      2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
      2 (14 ounce) cans fire roasted Tomatoes
      2 (14 ounce) cans Black Beans, drained & rinsed
      1 1/2 to 2 pounds Butternut Squash, peeled and diced
      2 tablespoons Cornmeal (optional)

    Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a 5 quart dutch oven. Add the onions and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the onions just begin to turn translucent. Stir the onions as required to keep them from browning.
  • Add the red bell pepper, jalapenos, and butternut squash and continue to cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and let cook for just 30 seconds before adding in the coffee, broth, cocoa powder, smoked paprika, chipotle peppers, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, and tomatoes. Allow the chili to come to simmer before reducing the heat. Cover and let the chili cook for 25 to 30 minutes on low heat. Taste for spice level and adjust with additional chipotle peppers if desired. Add the black beans and allow the chili to cook for another 30 minutes.
  • The chili is done when the butternut squash is tender and the liquid should reduce a bit. To make your chili heartier, sprinkle in 1 tablespoon of the cornmeal, stir to combine, and allow 5 to 7 minutes to thicken. You can add the second tablespoon and follow the same directions to thicken it further.
  • Serve the chili in bowls, topped with crushed tortilla chips and sour cream or diced avocados. Chopped cilantro and lime wedges are good too.

  • Note: Jalapeno peppers are optional, you can replace them with diced bell peppers for a more mild chili. Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are available in the ethnic food aisle at your supermarket.

  • HEALTH BENEFITS

    Fruits and vegetable consumption has been associated with a reduced risk of many adverse health conditions. Consuming plant foods, such as butternut squash, decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and overall mortality. It can also enhance the complexion, increase energy, and contribute to a healthy weight.

    HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

    Butternut Squash is helpful for lowering and preventing high blood pressure. Butternut squash contains a sizeable helping of potassium, which experts have shown to have a positive effect on blood pressure. To maintain a healthy blood pressure, getting enough potassium in the diet is as important as lowering sodium intake. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommend a daily potassium intake of at least 3,510 mg for adults, while the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and recommend 4700 mg per day. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), most American adults consume too much sodium and too little potassium. Fewer than 2 percent of adults in the United States (U.S.) consume the daily recommended amount of potassium. A high potassium intake is also associated with a reduced risk of death from all types of stroke and cardiovascular disease, and other causes of mortality.

    ASTHMA

    Butternut Squash is helpful for preventing asthma. People who consume a high amount of beta-carotene appear to have a lower risk of asthma. Beta-carotene is the antioxidant that gives certain fruits and vegetables, like squash, their bright orange pigment. Other orange plant foods with a high beta-carotene content include papaya, sweet potato, apricots, broccoli, cantaloupe, pumpkin, and carrots.

    CANCER

    Butternut Squash is helpful for lowering cancer risk. Studies have indicated that people who consume more carotenoids, including, beta-carotene are less likely to develop colon cancer.

    DIABETES

    Butternut Squash is helpful for managing diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes who consume high-fiber diets have lower overall blood sugar levels. For people with type 2 diabetes, additional fiber improves blood sugar, lipids, and insulin levels. One cup of butternut squash provides about 6.6 grams of fiber. The AHA recommend consuming 25 grams of fiber a day for a 2,000 calorie diet.

    HEALTHY SKIN & HAIR

    Butternut Squash is helpful for healthy hair. The vitamin A content in butternut squash can lead to healthier hair and skin. Butternut squash can enhance the hair and skin because of its high vitamin A content. Vitamin A is needed for sebum production, which keeps hair moisturized. Vitamin A plays an important role in the growth of all bodily tissues, including skin and hair. One serving of butternut squash also provides over 50 percent of the required vitamin C intake for a day. Vitamin C helps build and maintain collagen, which provides structure to skin and hair.

    DIGESTION

    Butternut Squash is helpful for digestive health. Maintaining a high fiber diet helps to prevent constipation and promote a healthy digestive tract. Studies have suggested that dietary fiber may decrease inflammation and improve immune function. This means it can help reduce the risk of inflammation-related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. A high fiber intake has also been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, nourish gut bacteria, and enhance weight loss for people with obesity.

    IMMUNE SYSTEM

    Butternut Squash is helpful in boosting immune function. Plant foods like butternut squash that are high in both vitamin C and beta-carotene can help boost immunity. Some studies have shown that high-fiber foods may also contribute to better immune function.

    A diet that is healthful overall is most important in preventing disease and achieving good health. A varied intake of nutrient-rich foods, and especially fruits and vegetables, is more important than focusing on individual foods as the key to good health.

    NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

    Butternut Squash, although referred to as a winter squash, is grown in the summer and harvested in the fall. Its thick, tough exterior and firm flesh make it suitable for storing over several months. This meas it can be eaten during the winter season. Butternut Squash is a good source of fiber, potassium, and other key nutrients. The nutritional content of squash makes it beneficial for digestion, blood pressure, and for healthy skin and hair, among other benefits. Squash can enhance or form the basis of a variety of sweet and savory dishes and desserts.

    According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Database, one cup of cooked, cubed butternut squash, containing around 205 grams, contains 82 calories, 1.8 grams (g) of protein, 0.18 grams of fat, 21.5 grams of carbohydrate, including 4 grams of sugar and 6.6 grams of dietary fiber. It also provides 84 milligrams (mg) of calcium, 1.23 mg of iron, 582 mg of potassium, 59 mg of magnesium, 55 mg of phosphorus, 31 milligrams of vitamin C, 1144 micrograms (mcg) of vitamin A. The recommended daily allowance of vitamin A is 900 mcg for men and 700 mcg for women. For vitamin C is it 90 mg for men and 75 mg for women. Butternut squash is also a good source of vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, and manganese. A cup of cubed butternut squash also provides 582 mg of potassium, more than the amount available in a banana.

    MEDICINAL USES

    According to some sources, Butternut Squash seeds have been used to treat social anxiety disorder. Pumpkin seeds (squash seeds), seed oil, and pumpkin pulp have been evaluated in limited clinical trials for medicinal actions, including anthelmintic, hypotensive, and hypoglycemic activity. The extracts may also be useful for managing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia and anxiety-related disorders, although limited clinical trial information is available.




    BUTTERNUT SQUASH DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Butternut Squash, and other members of the squash family, including pumpkin, acorn, zucchini, is a dietary food and when eaten in moderation in a well rounded nutritional plan, health benefits can be utilized and is considered safe for consumption.

    Limited high-quality clinical trials exist to support therapeutic dosing. Pumpkin seeds (squash seeds), 30 grams daily, has been used as a source of supplemental iron in nonpregnant adults. Lipids comprise up to 50 percent of the seed and around 30 percent is protein. Pumpkin (squash) seeds can be a nutritional source of iron and potassium. Phytosterols (eg, beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol), antioxidant tocopherols, antihelminthic cucurbitin, squalene, and cardioprotective fatty acids have been isolated from the seeds and seed oil. The presence of squash inhibitors (serine protease inhibitors) is thought to confer a protective effect to the plant against pests and pathogens.

    For diabetes, limited high-quality clinical trials exist to support therapeutic dosing. Fresh pumpkin (squash) juice 4 mL/kg of body weight was administered in a study conducted among patients with type 2 diabetes. However, it would take 100 grams of crushed fruit to equal 75 ml of juice. Pumpkin seed, 30 grams, provide approximately 4 milligrams of iron. When administered to nonpregnant adults for 4 weeks, iron status improved. Pumpkin seed, 23 grams per 100 milliliter, was used in a study of anthelmintic action.





    BUTTERNUT SQUASH SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION

    POTENTIAL HEALTH RISKS

    Butternut squash is a healthful option, but its high potassium content may mean that some people should consume it in moderation. Beta-blockers are a type of medication commonly prescribed for people with heart disease. These can cause potassium levels to increase in the blood. People who are using beta blockers should consume high potassium foods in moderation, because some people who use beta blockers will have a higher risk of hyperkalemia, or too much potassium. People with kidney problems should take care when consuming large amounts of potassium. If the kidneys are unable to remove excess potassium from the blood, it could be fatal.

    Vitamin A toxicity, with abnormal liver function tests, has been reported with prolonged and excessive pumpkin (squash) consumption.
