Pecans: Delicious & Nutritious

Pecans, The World’s Most Interesting Nut


Pecans are one of the most fascinating nuts in the world. They have visited the moon, there are over 1,000 types of them, their trees can live for over 200 years, and they are one of the most sought-after nuts worldwide. Is there nothing these delicious and nutritious nuts can’t do?


However, there is a debate brewing nationally about the claiming of these nuts. With pecan trees being native to North America, it is not a surprise to find out that the United States houses 80% of the world’s pecan crop. What is a surprise though, is that the states of Georgia and Texas both claim stake in the fight for “Pecan Capital of the U.S.”. Georgia boasts having more than 600,000 pecan trees within its borders, as well as being the nation’s leading pecan producing state, but in Texas this nut is so popular that the pecan tree was declared the state tree in 1919 and they claim to have invented Butter Pecan ice cream.

Health Benefits Of Pecans


Not only are pecans delicious, but they also contain essential vitamins and minerals that can keep you healthy. Because of their rich buttery flavor, they are a commonly used ingredient in many dishes, but whether you are eating them raw or including them in your favorite spread, we want to clue you in on their MAJOR health benefits.


If being on The American Heart Association’s list of certified heart healthy foods wasn’t enough, pecans are also gluten free and contain the highest number of antioxidants of any tree nut. They are loaded with iron, calcium, and B vitamins. While remaining low in cholesterol and sodium, they are an excellent source of protein and fiber. Some medical professionals differ on exactly what benefits come from these powerful nuts, but along with heart health, you could see joint relief, as well as help with blood sugar control if you make pecans more a part of your diet.


Going forward, make sure to introduce these magical nuts into your daily life!
