About Pecan Fan

Pecans - the power snack

Pecans are packed full of the 'good' fats - monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and omega-3 which play an important role in lowering cholesterol and keeping the heart healthy. In fact, they're so good for the heart that Pecan packs now carry the National Heart Foundation's 'Tick'!

Pecans are also the king of antioxidants. They have a higher antioxidant capacity than any other nut and contain five times more antioxidants than raw broccoli, making them important for keeping us looking and feeling young. Great for weight management, the fibre and protein levels in Pecans also make them great for satisfying afternoon cravings.

Last but not least, they are the secret to ensuring your body gets the nutrients it needs. That's right, eating a handful of Pecans a day provides you with 19 vitamins and minerals.  Complete from Arginine to Zinc - Arginine an essential amino acid for healthy blood vessels and the mineral zinc for strong immunity, Pecans are the healthy all rounder that can be eaten every day, in any way!
