Pecans and their Health Benefits

When the holidays are here we all like a slice of pecan pie after our Christmas dinner. Did you know that pecans are very good for you?

Like other nuts, pecans are rich in protein, but because they’re literally loaded with antioxidants, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has ranked pecans as the nut with the highest antioxidant capacity. Not only are pecans an excellent source of heart-healthy fat, but rich in 18 essential nutrients.

Nutrients in Pecans


Pecans are a good source of many vitamins and minerals. The nutrients found in pecans include:
  • thiamin
  • iron
  • magnesium
  • phosphorous
  • zinc
  • copper
  • manganese
  • vitamin E
Pecans also contain vitamin C, vitamin K, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, calcium, potassium, and selenium. Pecans are also a good source of fiber and contain a small amount of omega-3 fatty acids.

Having pecan pie is a rich treat but in moderation is fine. Eat a handful of unsalted pecans for a healthy snack! Enjoy!
