The Healthy Nut
- High in protein & fibre content
- Loaded with minerals
- No cholesterol
An increasing amount of nutritional research proves that tree nuts are an important part of a healthy diet, and pecan is one of the healthiest nuts in the world.
A review published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that pecans can aid in weight loss and maintenance.
Naturally gluten free and containing over 19 vitamins and minerals, pecans are known to contain vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, omega-3s, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins, and zinc.
Pecans are also a high-quality source of protein and fibre that contain very few carbohydrates and no cholesterol.
In a 100 gram amount, pecans provide 691 calories (highest calories amongst dry fruits) and over 100% of the daily value (DV) for total fat.
Pecans are also a good source of protein, iron (almost twice than cashews) and vitamin B.
