Pecan

The pecan is the fruit of the pecan, a species of fruit tree that belongs to the walnut and walnut family. It is a tree native to the southern United States, spreading through Texas and northern Mexico. However, it is also beginning to be produced in other parts of the world, such as South Africa, Australia, Brazil, Argentina or Peru.

As it belongs to the same family as the walnut, its nutritional properties are similar; but they stand out above all for being a more elongated “nut”, with a smooth surface and a more reddish color. They also stand out for a sweeter flavor.

They are a dry fruit rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol and triglycerides; also providing plenty of folic acid and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. These factors contribute to weight loss, reduction of inflammation, improve heart health, and help control diabetes.
