General information

The Pecan Tree belongs to the Juglandaceae family. It originates from the eastern part of the USA. The tree is grown in all northern parts of the American continent, Brazil, Australia, Israel and South Africa. The fruit shape is found in variable forms but normally egg-shaped. The appearance is smooth and has a dark brown colour. The fruit is covered in a light red skin and is found inside the shell and it has a similar taste to Walnuts.

Health Benefits

The pecan nut kernel contains between 65% - 70% oil; of which 73% are composed of monounsaturated fatty acids and 17% polyunsaturated linoleic fatty acid. The oleic acids are the same found in olive oil. The pecan nut is an exceptional source of monounsaturated fatty acid and antioxidants which benefit the heart.
