National Zucchini Bread Day – April 25th


Happy National Zucchini Bread Day!

Zucchini are a summer squash, treated as a vegetable in the culinary world, but botanically, zucchini are a fruit (a type of berry), as they are the ovary of the zucchini flower. Either way, they have a wonderful nutritional profile:

  • Calories – approximately 17 calories per 100 grams
  • Folate – 24 ug per 100 grams
  • Potassium – 261 mg per 100 grams
  • Vitamin A –  200 IU per 100 grams
