Pecans are a Heart Healthy Food

Heart-Check-Logo
Recent studies show that Pecans are not only delicious but they are also good for you.

The F.D.A has approved this qualified health claim: “Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as Pecans, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”

This is good news we are happy to share. We are proud to tell you that Sunnyland’s Extra Fancy Natural ‘Mammoth’ Pecan Halves, ‘Junior’ Pecan Halves, and Pecan Pieces have been certified by the American Heart Association as a “Heart Healthy” Food.
