Are the Pecans In Turtles Healthy?
While they are smothered in delicious chocolate, which has a much worse reputation than it should due to its fat and sugar content, pecans actually do have some health benefits that may interest you. They're high in healthy unsaturated fat and just a few a day can lower 'bad' cholesterol. They contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B, and E, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, folic acid and zinc. One ounce of pecans provides 10 percent of the recommended daily intake of fiber. Pecans are rich in age-defying antioxidants and the USDA shows that pecans are the most antioxidant-rich tree nut.
How Are These So Popular?
Salted caramels, ice cream with pretzels, kettle corn and the classic DeMet's Turtles King Size Bar all have one thing in common. The marriage of salty and sweet, like in Turtle bars, is one that shouldn't work but magically does. Too much sugar can be too intense and too much salt just tastes terrible, but when you mix the two it turns into something heavenly. Salt isn't just a nutrient, it's also a flavor enhancer. So, it stands to reason that if you mix salt and sugar, the salt enhances the sugar flavors. Chefs call this flavor layering, and the right mix actually gives your brain a positive biological response.
