Pecans grow on really tall trees in the south and southeast United States. When the shells turn brown and begin to crack, harvest time is afoot. The farmer shakes the tree vigorously with a mechanical shaker, whereupon the pecans fall to the ground. They are then swept off the ground and must be dried subsequently to prevent spoilage. Gumballs.com sells only fresh and delicious bulk pecans, without sales tax for an equally delicious pricing structure! Pecans provide unsaturated fats and protein. Like walnuts (which pecans resemble), pecans are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, despite the fact that pecans contain only about half the omega-6 as walnuts. A nut-rich diet may help lower the risk of gallstones in women. In addition, antioxidants and plant sterols found in pecans reduce "bad" LDL cholesterol levels. So many reasons to become a pecan promoter and be nuts for our pecans!
