In addition to being a truly delicious treat, pistachios are among the most nutritious nuts around. Pistachio nuts are all natural, cholesterol free, high in fiber, low in saturated fats and NO transfats, and
One ounce of shelled pistachios contains 10% of an adult's needed daily intake of protein, without animal fats. There is more potassium and iron by weight in pistachios than in any other nut, fruit, or vegetable.
Pistachios are nutrient dense, providing a good balance of calories compared to concentrated
nutrition. They are an excellent source of complex carbohydrate energy.
