    Related to the walnut, pecans are native to America, and grow enclosed in a glossy, browny-red oval shell. The kernel inside shares the walnut's trademark grooved surface but has a slightly more even, oval shape. Its skin is a warmer, lighter brown, and the nut itself is creamier in colour.

    Sweet and rich, the pecan's distinct flavour and texture is the result of its high levels of mono-saturated oil - in fact, it's the fattiest of all nuts. It goes well in both savoury and sweet dishes, most famously pecan pie, a classic recipe from the American south.

    • Pecan nuts are rich source of energy, carry 690 calories/100g and contain health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for wellness.
    • The nuts are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid and an excellent source of phenolic antioxidants. Regular addition of pecan nuts in the diet helps to decrease total as well as LDL or bad cholesterol and increases HDL or good cholesterol levels in the blood. Research studies suggest that the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in dietary-fibre, mono-unsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants would help to prevent coronary artery disease and strokes by favouring healthy blood lipid profile.
    • Pecan nuts are rich source of many phyto-chemical substances that may contribute to their overall antioxidant activity, including polyphenolic antioxidant ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein and zea-xanthin. Research studies have been suggestive of that these compounds help the body remove toxic oxygen-free radicals and thus, protect the body from diseases, as well as infections.
    • Anti-proliferative properties of ellagic acid is because of its ability to inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens such as nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, thus, offering protection to human body from cancers.
    • Pecans are an excellent source of vitamin-E, especially rich in gamma-tocopherol; provide about 25 g per 100 g. Vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen-free radicals.
    • The nuts are very rich sources of several important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. Together, these vitamins work as co-factors for the enzyme metabolism inside the human body.
    • The nuts are also rich source of minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.
    May contain nuts, celery, mustard or sesame seeds.
