Product Description

Pecan Pieces

Pecan is considered to be one of the most antioxidant tree nuts. Native Americans who valued these nuts for their rich, nutritious content and used them as a medication knew its healthful qualities.

How Are Organic Pecans Grown?

At present, many farms are engaged in growing organic pecans. On these farms, trees are cultivated with the help of environment-friendly techniques such as crop rotation, compost, biological pesticide control, and some others. Synthetic fertilizers and growth-enhancing substances are excluded from the process. As a result, organic nuts do not contain any pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.

Why Are Organic Pecans Better?

All pecans – both organic and non-organic – are a powerhouse of healthful nutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fat. They are exceptionally rich in minerals – manganese, copper, zinc – and in vitamins. What is more essential – the nuts are packed with antioxidants. These phytochemical substances remove toxic free radicals from the body, thus defending it from numerous ailments. Recent studies have revealed the fact that organic pecans are up to 60% higher in antioxidants than non-organic ones.

Health Benefits of Organic Pecans

  1. Protection of the heart
    Studies have shown that pecans can balance cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of hypertension. Their high content of monosaturated fat makes them invaluable for people with the heart and vessel disorders.
  2. Lower risk of type 2 diabetes
    Although rich in carbohydrates, pecans help maintain blood sugar levels, which is of great importance for people who are inclined to this severe illness.
  3. Cancer prevention
    A high content of such powerful antioxidants as ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin makes pecans helpful in reducing the risk of different types of cancer.
  4. Prevention of gallstones
    Medical observations suggest that there is a link between eating pecans and decreased risk of creation of stones in the bile cyst.
  5. Anti-toxicity properties
    Pecans help ward off toxic substances due to high content of fiber and protect the liver, kidneys, and bladder

Pecan Pieces: Nutrition Facts

Organic pecan pieces are incredibly nutritious. On the one hand, it’s a great thing as a handful of them will provide you with a significant boost of nutrients. They are mainly rich in:

  • Vitamin E
  • B vitamins
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  • Iron
  • Zinc

Organic pecan pieces also contain calcium, selenium, and vitamins A and C.

In addition to these essential elements, 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of pecan pieces contain about 9 grams of protein and 9.6 grams of fiber. However, like all other nuts, pecans are a high-calorie food. This amount of them will have almost 700 calories and a lot of fats.

The fats are heart-friendly, and some of them are omega-3 essential fatty acids. However, eating a lot of nuts in one go might not be the best idea as even good fats can be harmful if you consume too much. A handful of organic pecan pieces a day, on the other hand, is not only safe for your waistline. It’s very good for your wellbeing in general. As this snack is very filling and fiber-rich, you can include it in a weight management diet.

Culinary Uses of Organic Pecan Pieces

Food To Live Organic Pecan Pieces are delicious as they are so that you can enjoy them as a raw snack. You can also roast them and season with spices to enhance the flavor. Candied pecan pieces are delicious, but also high in calories, so watch how many of them you eat.

If you want to use organic pecan pieces for some ‘actual cooking,’ you’ll have dozens of options. Add them to baked goods of any type or sprinkle on salads and desserts. Some stews will taste better with a handful of nuts, but in this case, add the ingredient at the end of cooking.

Buying Organic Pecan Pieces in bulk is highly cost-effective as this will give you enough nuts to make:

  • Pecan meal for gluten-free baking and making incredible pancakes
  • Pecan milk for vegans and those who want an extra nutritional boost
  • Pecan butter for making filling and healthy sandwiches

How to Store Organic Pecan Pieces (Bulk)

Organic Pecan Pieces contain oils so that they can go rancid. To prevent this keep them in a cool, dry place. Fridge or freezer are the best choices, but a cool pantry is also good. The most important thing is to store your pieces of pecan or other nuts well away from heat and keep them in airtight containers.

Raw Chai Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Raw Chai Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients

Base:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup raw pecans
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (little scant)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 – 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • couple pinches ground cardamom
  • few pinches ground cloves (about 1/16 tsp)
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped out
  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest


Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup (well packed) raw coconut butter (not oil)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp pure maple syrup or raw agave nectar
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (or freshly squeezed lemon juice)
  • couple pinches cinnamon
  • Couple pinches sea salt


Instructions

Line a loaf dish or similarly sized small pan with parchment paper. Place the cashews, dates, and raisins in a food processor. Pulse until the nuts and fruits are crumbly, then add the pecans and the remaining ingredients and process again, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple of times, until the mixture has come together and becomes sticky (don’t overprocess, as pecans can make mixture too oily if overworked). Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf dish. Press the mixture firmly into the pan (using a small piece of parchment is easiest). Prepare the frosting: Combine all the ingredients in a mini food processor, or mix very well by stirring in a bowl). Smooth the frosting over the base. Refrigerate for an hour or more until set. Cut into bars or squares and serve!

Enjoy it!
