Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Like their other nut cousins, pecans are a great source of dietary fiber, potassium, protein, iron, magnesium and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Additionally, research has shown pecans to help lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. With a higher fat content, pecans tend to have a more buttery texture than other nuts but is also more caloric. The addition of honey makes this nut butter quite irresistible so keep a sharp eye on the amount you spread on your toast or fruit...enjoy in moderation!
