Nutrition Facts

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.

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 Conditions of Pistachios

Slivered Pistachios should be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry area. When stored at room temperature, the nuts will last for only a few weeks. When stored in the refrigerator, they can remain for months and may even last for a full year if deposited in the freezer. We provide slivered pistachios in vacuumed packages that will make them easier to store. You can keep them in the vacuum package for about 1 or 2 years.

 

Allergy of Pistachios

If you have one tree nut allergy, it’s highly likely that you’re allergic to other tree nuts as well. Well, slivered pistachio is made of pistachio nuts, so you should use them with caution if you have a nut allergy. 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 harm. Interestingly, even some people with known pollen allergies test positive for nut antibodies, even though they’re not particularly allergic to nuts.
