Besides their delicious flavor, pecans, like most nuts, have a great nutritional profile, with heart-healthy properties. Several studies have found that pecans can lower your risk of heart disease, and can also lower bad cholesterol. They’re super high in Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant. If you were wondering if pecans are good for you, the answer is yes, but in moderation, since pecans, like any nuts, are high in calories and fats. An ounce of pecans has 200 calories, 3 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. They’re rich in vitamins and minerals, and they’re rich in phytonutrients, plant-based antioxidants purported to boost immunity. Pecans are also a great source of zinc, which many studies have proven can shorten the duration of colds. Plus, pecans have more flavonoids than any nut; flavonoids are a strong antioxidant that protect against many diseases. So if you were looking for a healthy snack to dig into, you can’t go wrong with a handful of pecans.
