The rich, nutty taste of Georgia Pecans can enhance the flavor of any dish. But more than just a savory sensation, pecans provide essential nutrients like oleic acid, which can help lower "bad" LDL cholesterol levels. Pecans are also rich in vitamin E, thiamin, magnesium, and copper, and are a good source of fiber.
