Pecans Nutrition Facts

The Nutritional Value of Pecans Nutrition Facts

– dry roasted, without salt added –

Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats. Like walnuts (which pecans resemble), pecans are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, although pecans contain about half as much omega-6 as walnuts.

A diet rich in nuts can lower the risk of gallstones in women. The antioxidants and plant sterols found in pecans reduce high cholesterol by reducing the “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.

USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 23 (2010)
Nutrition Note: All values are for 100 grams (3.52 ounces) and for dry roasted nuts. The best nutritional value however is always obtained from fresh raw nuts, so best try to get fresh nuts. The longer you store or cook, dry or roast your products the more nutritional value is lost, so if you need to cook do it short and fast and always use fresh products. Also If   you have special needs or conditions make sure you consult with your doctor or nutritionist.
