Did you know there’s a National Pecan Shellers Association? Neither did we. They say that pecan halves are full of mono and polyunsaturated fats, the healthy kinds and are part of a diet that can reduce cholesterol. There’s a lot of vitamin A and B, as well as less E but enough to be really healthy. A great source of calcium for those who can’t drink milk or eat lactose products, pecan halves are worth a look if you’re trying to supplement your diet in a delicious way. Many people will recognize the flavour from coffee cake, the combination is sublime.
