You may love eating pecans, but did you know that they are also a heart-healthy food? According to https://www.health.com, they have more than twice the flavonoid content found in almonds, cashews, and pistachios, and seven times the amount in walnuts. Pecans are also a great source of thiamin, zinc, manganese and copper.
Most of us, however, savor pecans for the pure delicious taste! In recognition of America’s love of pecans, each April we celebrate National Pecan Month.
