Organic Raw Activated Pecans
I’ll raise you a pecan! Before European settlement, pecans were often traded amongst Native Americans; they were an excellent food source for hunter gatherers as they are very high in energy. The name “pecan” is thought to have originated from the Algonquin Indian tribe word “pakan” which means a hard-shelled nut that requires a stone for cracking. Wild pecan trees grow up to 50 meters andcan live and produce nuts for 150 years.Despite being the only nut known to originate from the USA, we source only the freshest pecans from Australia, which ensures that they not only meet our stringent quality standards, but arrive super fresh! Pecans are abundant in healthy fats: both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated – including Omega 3 fatty acids, these fats are important for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and a healthy heart. A natural source of fibre, just a 30g serve of pecans can deliver 10% of your daily requirement.
