Pumpkin is a good source of vitamin A and vitamin C, containing high levels of the carotenoids (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin) which the body converts to vitamin A (some more than others). The stronger the colour of the flesh, the more carotenoids the pumpkin will contain. They are a source of folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin E, and contain potassium at levels of dietary significance.
