A handful of pecans – about 19 halves – is a good source of fiber, thiamin, and zinc, and an excellent source of copper and manganese – a mineral that’s essential for metabolism and bone health.
In each 1-ounce serving you’ll get 12 grams of “good” monounsaturated fat, with zero cholesterol or sodium. Compared to other nuts, pecans are among the lowest in carbs (4 grams) and highest in dietary fiber (3 grams) per serving.
To top it off, pecans contain phytonutrients, specifically flavonoids (10 mg per ounce). Flavonoids in foods are listed in the USDA Database for the Flavonoid Content of Selected Foods.
