Pecans are a fantastic snack and are also great for baking. They have no cholesterol and are high in fibre and zinc, which helps make new cells and enzymes and helps process the carbohydrate, fat and protein in the food we eat. They also have plenty of thiamin (also known as vitamin B1), manganese and copper.
Fact: Albany, in Georgia, U.S.A., has more than 600,000 pecan trees and hosts an annual Pecan Festival which includes a race, a parade, a pecan-cooking contest, the crowning of the National Pecan Queen and many other activities.
