Statement of Benjamin Cohen, Senior Staff Attorney for the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) on Congress’s Ordering USDA to Submit New Quarterly Reports on Its Enforcement of the Imported Meat and Poultry Safety Laws
It’s officially fall. Have you had any pumpkin yet?
It’s that time of year. Pumpkin is making its way into lattes, muffins, and more.
But it doesn’t appear on plates often enough as, well, just pumpkin.
Like most deep-orange veggies, pumpkin is rich in vitamin A from carotenoids. Each half cup of mashed, cooked pumpkin has more than a day’s worth. And it comes with a decent dose of potassium and fiber…all for only 25 calories.
