Acorn squash, also called pepper squash or Des Moines squash, is a winter squash with distinctive longitudinal ridges on its exterior and sweet, yellow-orange flesh inside. Although considered a winter squash, acorn squash belongs to the same species as all summer squashes.
Acorn squash has a glycemic load of 8, which means that a single serving does not raise blood sugar levels significantly. Foods with glycemic load scores lower than 10 are considered appropriate for a diabetic diet or a low-glycemic diet for individuals trying to lose weight.
A 1-cup serving of acorn squash delivers 37 percent and 18 percent of the recommended daily values for vitamins C and A, respectively, and 23 percent and 20 percent of the recommended daily values for thiamin and vitamin B-6, respectively.
