Organic Pecan Butter
Native American Indians made pecan milk by pounding the nuts with a mortar and pestle before adding water and stirring them into a nourishing beverage. Pecan milk was an ideal energy food for their infants as well as the elders because it was so easy to digest. In the context of this rich American heritage, we bring you our Organic Pecan Butter which has a smooth texture, fresh aroma, and most importantly, a deep, rich, intense, complex taste that make this a profoundly satisfying blend of nutrient dense ingredients. Every spoonful is a healthy treat.
Pecans are loaded with heart-healthy unsaturated fats and recently published scientific studies show that pecan consumption can help lower blood cholesterol. Pecans contain plant sterols which are highly touted today for their ability to lower cholesterol. In addition, pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and several B vitamins. Pecans are naturally cholesterol-free and sodium-free, and one serving provides about 10 percent of the government's recommended Daily Values for zinc and fiber. Further, pecans can be helpful as part of a weight-control diet because the mono- and polyunsaturated fats - the "good fats" - in pecans contribute to satiety.
Our Organic Pecan Butter also contains cashews. Cashews provide essential fatty acids, B vitamins, fiber, protein and are significant sources of iron (essential for red blood cell function and enzyme activity), magnesium (promotes energy release and bone growth), phosphorus (builds bones and teeth), zinc (essential to digestion and metabolism) and selenium (has important antioxidant properties, thus protecting the body from cancer). Cashew nuts also contain significant amounts of phytochemicals with antioxidant properties that protects the body from cancer and heart disease. Like other nuts, cashews are high in saturated fat but they are lower in total fat than almonds, peanuts, pecans, and walnuts. They are also, like all other tree nuts, cholesterol free.
Our Organic Pecan Butter containins 100% organic, raw pecans and organic, raw cashews and can be added to fruit shakes, cereal, and other recipes.
