These unsalted roasted pistachios are a great treat for pistachio lovers who cannot have any salt. These are graded as Extra Large by the USDA, which means an average count of 18 to 20 nuts per ounce. That is certainly quite large! These pistachio nuts really hit the spot.
Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick
Pistachios are one our Registered Dietitian’s favorite nuts because one serving consists of 49 pistachios and each handful delivers healthy fats, protein, fiber, phosphorus, copper, and manganese. Because of their large serving size (compared to other nuts), they make a great snack to eat while watching a movie or television show. Our Health Nut loves to share different varieties of our flavored pistachios at parties!
A one-ounce serving of pistachios – more nuts per serving than any other nut and contains more than 10% of the Daily Value for dietary fiber, vitamin B-6, thiamin, phosphorus and copper.
You can get more dietary fiber from a serving of pistachios than a 1/2 cup of broccoli or spinach.
Pistachios are especially rich in phytosterols, which are directly associated with lowering cholesterol levels, and may offer protection from certain types of cancer.
A serving of pistachios has as much thiamin as a 1/2 cup serving of cooked rice.
The amount of vitamin B-6 in a one-ounce serving of pistachios is comparable to a standard three-ounce serving of pork or chicken.
One serving of pistachios has as much potassium as half a large banana.
Pistachios are a very high quality plant source of protein, providing adequate and balanced amounts of essential amino acids. In addition, pistachios are relatively high in a nonessential amino acid, arginine, which may play a potential role in prevention or reduction of cardiovascular disease.
While pistachios contain fat, the fat is predominantly monounsaturated, similar to that found in olive oil.
