A Healthy Snack

Georgia Pecans
When it comes to finding a nut that’s tasty and nutritious, the pecan isn’t a hard nut to crack! Since its arrival on the world food stage in the 1500s, pecans have been used in most meal courses, from salads to entrees to desserts! There’s no doubt about how great a pecan tastes, but what about its nutritional value and health benefits? At Zorro, we believe pecans are the perfect addition to a well-rounded diet because they contain no sodium, cholesterol, or gluten, and they are packed with vitamins and fiber.

Heart Health

Pecans consist mainly of unsaturated fat – the good kind of fat - supporting a healthy heart by lowering cholesterol levels. Evidence suggests that eating just 1.5 ounces of pecans per day can lower the risk of heart disease.

Fights Free Radicals

Pecans are choked full of antioxidants which means they help fight oxidative stress and inflammation that can lead to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Weight Control

Due to the nutrients packed in pecans, it is suggested that consumption may help increase weight loss and successfully maintain ideal weight by increasing metabolic rate and satiety levels.

Supports Brain Function

Thiamine, copper, and manganese are minerals needed for proper brain function – and pecans have all three! These minerals have been shown to fight certain brain conditions, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and help with mood problems and focusing issues.
