Description

With a distinct buttery flavor and satisfying crunch, our whole roasted and salted pistachios make for a wonderful snack all on their own!

Our roasted whole & salted pistachios come from California. Although commonly referred to as a nut, pistachios are actually a seed that forms in the middle of a drupe (fruit that the tree produces). Pistachios are packed with nutrition. They are a rich source of protein, fiber, and minerals such as phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, and iron as well as vitamins B6 and thiamine. They are also a good source of calcium, potassium, zinc, riboflavin, folate, and vitamins E and K. The fat content of pistachios is primarily made up of healthy fats including oleic acid (51%), the most common of monounsaturated fats, and linoleic acid (31%), a polyunsaturated fat.

The consumption of nuts has grown in popularity over the past few years which is attributed to the immense nutrition they provide as a clean, whole food. Pistachios, in particular, have grown in popularity as they have a lower amount of fat and calories compared to other tree nuts, but have just as much if not more nutrition.

A member of the cashew family, pistachio are small trees originating from Central Asia and the Middle East. They have a long history going all the way back to 6750 BC. Today, they are predominately commercially grown in Iran and the United States (California) making up 76% of the total world supply.
