Pecans Pecans
NUTrition in a Nutshell

Although pecans are typically associated with the holidays or fancy candy dishes, there is no need to wait until the holidays to savor the crunchy texture and satisfying flavor of pecans. Pecans are packed with so much nutrition they should be enjoyed all year long.

Pecans are naturally cholesterol-free. Studies have shown pecans contain substances known as phytochemicals which help slow the oxidation of LDL, known as "bad" cholesterol and may also protect against certain cancers. A number of studies on nuts, including pecans, have shown that blood cholesterol levels can be lowered when nuts are incorporated into the diet.

Pecans are a source of vitamins A and E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, ptoassium and several B vitamins and zinc. Zinc is an important nutrient for proper growth and a strong immune system.

Pecans are an excellent choice for people on a salt or sodium restricted diet because they are sodium-free. They are a perfect way to increase the fiber in your diet. A one ounce serving of pecans has the same amount of fiber as a medium-sized apple. Pecans currently belong to the protein group in the USDA's Food Guide Pyramid, along with meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dried beans.
