Pistachios are sweet and slightly sour flavour, they have the most amazing shade of green. Like all nuts, pistachios are really good for you. 

The main benefits of pistachios are:

  • High in antioxidants
    Pistachios contain more antioxidants than most other nuts and seeds. In fact, only walnuts and pecans contain more.
  • Low in calories 
    28 grams of pistachios contains 159 calories, compared with 185 calories in walnuts and 193 calories in pecans
  • High in protein
    With protein comprising about 20% of their weight, pistachios are second only to almonds when it comes to protein content
  • Promote healthy gut bacteria
    Pistachios are high in fiber, which is good for your gut bacteria. Eating pistachios may increase the number of bacteria that produce beneficial short-chain fatty acids like butyrate.
  • May help lower blood sugar
    Despite having a higher carb content than most nuts, pistachios have a low glycemic index, meaning they don’t cause large blood sugar spikes.
  • May promote blood vessel health, may lower cholesterol and blood pressure
