The Nutritional Value of Pistachio Nuts Nutrition Facts

– dry roasted, without salt added –

From Wikipedia: The pistachio, Pistacia vera in the Anacardiaceae family, is a small tree native to regions of Syria, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, India and possibly Afghanistan (especially in the provinces of Samangan and Badghis). The tree produces an important culinary nut.

In research at Pennsylvania State University, pistachios in particular significantly reduced levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) while increasing antioxidant levels in the serum of volunteers.

Nutrition Note: All values are for 100 grams (3.52 ounces) and for dry roasted nuts. The best nutritional value however is always obtained from fresh raw nuts, so best try to get fresh nuts. The longer you store or cook, dry or roast your products the more nutritional value is lost, so if you need to cook do it short and fast and always use fresh products. Also If   you have special needs or conditions make sure you consult with your doctor or nutritionist.
