Squash contains a large amount of carbohydrates. Why isn't it listed as a safe starch then?

they are also much easier to grow than most tubers, and much easier to store.

nice - thanks! I just like the taste of them more and, as fruits, tend to have fewer toxic compounds that need to be cleansed in cooking.

Which squash has a "large" amount of carbohydrates? Gram for gram, how does squash stack up with tubers or rice?

"Yes, squash is a safe food. It wasn???t listed only because it has fewer starch calories." - Paul Jaminet
