Nutrition Facts of Pistachio Kernel

Low-Calorie Snack

A one-ounce serving of pistachios contains 49 nuts and about 160 calories. That’s more nuts and fewer calories per serving than any other nut. A serving of pistachios includes more than 10% of the Daily Value (DV) for dietary fiber, 20% of the DV for vitamin B6, and 15% of the DV for thiamine. Fiber plays an essential role in controlling blood glucose and cholesterol levels, while vitamin B6 and thiamine strengthen the nervous system, brain function, and eye health. Pistachios are also a great source of protein, potassium, copper, and phosphorus.

Full of Fiber

Pistachios are a pleasant snack that’s loaded with dietary fiber to keep you full and maintain a healthy digestive system. You’ll receive more dietary fiber in a serving of pistachios than a 1/2 cup of spinach or broccoli.

Lower Cholesterol, BMI, and Triglyceride Levels

A 2008 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that participants who replaced either 10 or 20 percent of their daily caloric intake with pistachios reduced their total cholesterol and LDL “bad” cholesterol more than those participants on a reduced-fat diet without pistachios. Further, a 2010 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition demonstrated that consuming 240 calories worth of pistachios for three months reduced body mass indexes (BMI) and triglyceride levels more than participants who consumed 220 calories in pretzels for that period.

Source of Antioxidants

Pistachios are an abundant source of antioxidants, which resist damaging free radicals and may reduce the risk for diseases associated with premature aging.

Vitamin B1

Compared to a 1/2 cup serving of cooked rice, a serving of pistachios contains even more thiamine (vitamin B1). Thiamine plays an essential role in converting food into energy.

Heart Health

Chock-full of potassium, pistachios contain even more of this powerful mineral than half a large banana. Potassium is a key nutrient that improves your heartbeat and may lower high blood pressure.

Protein and Amino Acids

Pistachios are an outstanding source of protein and provide sufficient amounts of amino acids. Bring a serving of pistachios with you to the gym as a post-workout snack to support repair muscle tissue.

 

Beverage or Other Food Pairing

“Food pairing” is a method for identifying which foods go well together. The picture below is a food pairing tree of pistachio that can inspire you for getting creative with this delicious nut.[1]

When it comes to cooking, pistachios are delightful in both sweet and savory recipes. This delicious nut has a lot of great pairings that you can light things up with them. Check out these examples for more inspiration:

 

PISTACHIOS + BANANA CHIPS

We are all crazy about portable snacks, and banana chips with pistachios are perfect for those on-the-go. Bananas are a good source of dietary fiber and minerals like potassium, manganese, and vitamins B6 and C.

 

PISTACHIOS + COCONUT CHIPS

You will love the taste and crunchiness of coconut chips mixed with pistachios. Coconuts are rich in lauric acid, which has been observed to raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) “good” cholesterol. It’s also a natural energy boost, improves immunity, sugar control, digestion.

 

PISTACHIOS + CLEMENTINES

The slightly sour and sweetness of the clementines is excellent with the salty pistachios. Clementines pack a punch when it gets to vitamin C. Just one clementine includes 36 milligrams, which is 60 percent of your daily value for vitamin C!

 

PISTACHIOS + CHOCOLATE

Go ahead, add a bit of dark chocolate to the mix. Nibbling on a small amount of chocolate can keep stress, blood pressure, and circulation under control! (Greatist)

Serving suggestions

One serving of pistachios is 49 kernels, which is about 1 ounce of shelled pistachios. Enjoy one serving between your breakfast and lunch, or one between lunch and dinner to help set you up for weight loss success. Or, instead of eating plain pistachios as a snack, add them to your salad at lunch or throw them in with your desired pasta at dinner. The combined texture and flavor adds a little something extra to your dish.[2]

Uses

If unprocessed, the fresh Pistachio meats inside are rich and juicy. They can be applied at that grade, fresh, without the processing. They can be pureed into a pesto for savory dishes, or the purée can be used in desserts such as custards or ice creams.

Pistachio cookies, pistachio ice-cream, pistachio pastry, pistachio cakes! Phew! There are plenty of uses of this incredible nut.

How Pistachios Are Harvested

A nutritious nut with an irresistible flavor, the beloved pistachio is a seed kernel grown mainly from the Pistacia vera tree. This tree has several cultivars; but, the most common is the Kerman, from which the nuts are typically harvested. A member of the cashew family, Anacardiaceae, the pistachio tree is native to Central Asia and Iran and grows in the dry, saline soil of the desert. As a desert plant, pistachio trees grow best in hot, dry climates and are harvested between late August and early October.

Growing your own pistachios seems like a dream come true; unfortunately, even in the right circumstances, it can take eight to ten years for the modern Pistacia vera to grow to the point of bearing its first harvest of edible nuts and fifteen to twenty years until it gives a full bearing. The inner shell of pistachio is encased in a hull called the epicarp; when the pistachio is prepared for harvesting, the epicarp will separate easily from the inner shell and will change in color from reddish-yellow to light yellow.

At the time of their harvesting, the pistachio trees are automatically shaken. The seeds that drop are then gathered in bins and transferred to a processing plant. Remaining epicarps are removed from the pistachio shells by a huller, and the pistachios are further sorted by size and dried to keep fresh. This entire process can be achieved in less than 24 hours.

 

Storage Condition

Unshelled pistachios (Kernels) can be stored in a cool and dry place like refrigerator for three month or freezer for almost a year. Pistachio kernels should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.

 

Allergy

If you have one tree nut allergy, it’s highly likely that you’re allergic to other tree nuts as well. Still, only about 25 to 40 percent of people are allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts, according to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE).[1]

If you are allergic to cashews, for instance, you might test positive for pistachio antibodies, however, consuming pistachios would not cause you any harms. Interestingly, even some people with known pollen allergies test positive for nut antibodies, even though they’re not particularly allergic to nuts.
