Just the Facts about Organic Pecan Nuts
For Optimal Nutrition, Choose Organic! It’s always best to go with organic pecans because they typically contain a higher concentration of nutrients than their conventionally grown counterparts.
Energy: Organic pecans are a great energy source. Every 100 grams of pecans has about 690 calories.
General Health: Pecans naturally have many health benefits, such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Fatty Acids: You can find lots of oleic acid in organic pecans. This acid, and other fatty acids found in pecans, help to lower cholesterol and improve heart health. Eating just one serving of organic pecans a day will do a lot for your heart.
Antioxidants: The phytochemicals found in organic pecans boost the antioxidant levels. Antioxidants are beneficial because they attack free radicals in the body, which cause disease and cell degeneration. Pecans contain plenty of antioxidants for overall health.
Vitamin E: With 25 grams of vitamin E in every 100 grams, pecans are a great source of this vitamin. Vitamin E is important for healthy cell and mucus membranes. It also helps to keep your skin healthy by fending off oxygen-free radicals.
Rich in Minerals: Compared to non-organic pecans, organic varieties contain a higher concentration of not only vitamins, but minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium, manganese, selenium and potassium.
Great for snacks: Organic pecans can be purchased shelled or un-shelled and ready to eat. They are tasty and easy to take along with you.
Versatile: Pecans can be used in either sweet or savory dishes. A number of delicious recipes incorporate pecans, so you will never run out of ways to include them in your daily diet.
Long Shelf Life: If kept inside of their shell, organic pecans can last for several months when kept in a cool, dry place. Shelled nuts don’t last quite as long and should be stored in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
Sold in a Variety of Sizes: You can choose to buy your organic pecans in bulk or single servings. A wide variety of sizes and options are available at most grocery stores or farmer’s markets.
