I'm definitely sensitive to fructose and need to limit it. Does anyone know how much acorn squash contains? I'm not sure if it is all glucose, fructose, a mix of the two, nor even how much sugar is in acorn squash to begin with.

Squash are awesome if you are low carb, they pack a lot of nutrition, flavor and sweetness even though they have a negligible amount of carbs. You could eat quite a lot of it before reaching 50g net carbs (which tends to be my personal limit). (more)
