Our Activated Organic Pecans are grown in the heart of Northern New South Wales and Southern Queensland by local farmers share our passion for sustainable agriculture, and the simple ingredients used to activate our pecans are 100% Australian.



Now, if you’ve never been a huge fan of pecans, activated organic pecans are a must-try – they really do take the taste, nutrition, and crunch of traditional pecans to a whole new level! But before we go any further on our activated organic pecan story, here are five fascinating pecan facts you share with friends while you’re sharing around a packet of our activated organic pecans:

  • Pecan trees can grow up to 45 metres in height
  • Pecans aren’t technically nuts -they’re fruits called drupes
  • Pecan trees can produce nuts for over a century
  • The Aztecs used pecan oil to treat skin conditions
  • Pecans are the only tree nut native to North America




To help you get the most out of pecans, our activation method of long soaking and slowly dehydrating at low temperatures, helps release the bioavailability of their vitamins and minerals. Health experts recommend consuming around 30g of nuts most days of the weeks - that equals around 15 organic activated pecans per day! Here are some advantages of incorporating activated pecans into your diet:

Nutrient-dense: Pecans contain essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, as well as dietary fibre and protein.

Heart-healthy: Rich in monounsaturated fats, pecans support heart health by helping regulate cholesterol levels.

Antioxidant-rich: These nuts are packed with antioxidants, which help protect against oxidative stress and promote cellular health.

Weight management: High in protein and fibre, pecans promote satiety and may help prevent overeating.

Blood sugar regulation: Low in carbs and high in fibre, pecans are an excellent choice for maintaining stable blood sugar levels.
