Why Buy Schermer Pecans in Bulk Every Fall?

While you may hear that the case for buying pecans and other nuts in bulk is rooted in savings, the real value with pecans extends beyond dollars and cents to quality. 

Contrary to popular belief and grocery store placement, pecans don’t belong on shelves. If you’ve ever tasted a fresh pecan it has an addictive crunch and signature sweetness – attributes that those in the store lack. Why? Because pecans should be kept in the freezer. Buying in bulk at peak freshness is easy because pecans can be stored in the freezer for up to two years.

Buying in bulk also allows you to bring pecans into your everyday diet. A certified heart-healthy food by The American Heart Association and beating out almonds, pecans are the most antioxidant rich tree nut and are among the top 15 foods to contain the highest antioxidant capacity. Research has shown that eating a handful of pecans each day may be as effective at lowering LDL (“bad” cholesterol) as some prescription medications.
