Southwestern Ontario has some of the most fertile farmland in all of North America. For many years, butternut squash has been a staple crop for this beautiful area. For our Butternut Squash Soup, Canada’s Own teamed up with the Squash Growers of Southwestern Ontario to source the best this region has to offer. With every homemade batch we make, we are showcasing our local farmers with a soup that’s smooth, creamy and naturally low in fat.
Butternut squash is a rich source of dietary fibre and phyto-nutrients. It has a very high level of vitamin A, is a powerful natural anti-oxidant and is rich with B vitamins, including folates, riboflavin, niacin and thiamin.
