Pecan Nut Kernel, 100gm
The pecan has a sweet, rich and buttery flavor and texture. Pecans can be used for making delicious deserts, salads and for topping-up breakfast cereals or consumed directly. Although somewhat resembling Walnuts, Pecans are a distinct nut and have a very different nutrition profile.
Pecans are rich in monounsaturated oils and fiber which boosts heart health, prevent strokes and some forms of cancer. The fiber contained in pecans promotes colon health and facilitates cleaning of the gastrointestinal system - preventing constipation and reducing the risk of colitis and hemorrhoids. Other benefits include weight loss, bone and teeth health, reduction of inflammation and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and blood pressure.
