Nutritional Benefits: 

Tasty, versatile nutrition

Earthbound Farm Organic Zucchini is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of manganese and vitamin B6, which is important for the breakdown of protein, fats and carbohydrates in the foods we eat, and also in the production of antibodies to help keep our immune system strong.

Try eating zucchini with produce that contains iron, such as spinach or potatoes; zucchini’s vitamin C content will help the body absorb iron from plant-based sources. 

Like other summer squashes, zucchini has a high water content; at only 22 calories per serving, it’s a great choice for people on a diet. In addition to zucchini’s anti-inflammatory properties (provided by vitamin C), it’s also a source of lutein, an antioxidant shown to promote eye health.
