About Our Bulk Pecan Pieces
Pecans originated in what is today Mexico and the south-central and southeastern regions of the United States, such as Georgia. For thousands of years, Native Americans traded and used pecans as a food source. Europeans discovered them in the 1500s AD, when Spanish explorers visited the regions that we now know as Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana. They brought the pecan tree into the Old World, namely Europe, Asia, and Africa, shortly thereafter.

Due to their high content of oils, we advise against long-term storage of our bulk Pecan Pieces in your pantry. Instead, store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator or freezer. They will keep for up to nine months, and they will stay fresh in the case of the latter for up to a year.
Health experts believe bulk pecan pieces aid battling heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. This is mainly due to the plant sterols within. Pecans are also a healthy source of folic acid, which adds further support to the cardiovascular system of the human body.
