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.

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 pecan pieces a day, on the other hand, is not only safe for your waistline. It’s actually 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.
