A one-ounce serving of pistachios equals 49 nuts – 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.

Oh, boy! was I surprised. For years (at least 45), I have been enjoying Turkish Pistachios nuts but only the smaller version, which I just learned is Turkish Pistachios Antep. I cannot remember if I have ever purchased Siirt, even though I have been buying from Nuts.com for a number of years. I must admit, however, that I only order the Antep 1 or 2 times because I have always purchased Zenobia Turkish Pistachios nuts. You guys have sent me (several times), free samples, why have you never included Turkish Pistachios Siirt? Anyway, I will most definitely be ordering these again, (and again, and again......). They are absolutely great!Ronald, Bronx, NY
