According to Baum and Whiteman’s annual report, “pistachios are the nut of the year”. They contain fewer calories and more potassium and vitamin K per serving than other nuts. Their high fibre content also keeps you feeling fuller for longer so work great for a snack and as a rich source of Vitamin B6, pistachios are very beneficial to the nervous and immune systems. They also contain more protein in comparison with other nuts (such as almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, and walnuts) and are the ‘nut of choice’ for people trying to lose weight. Just don’t forget to take the shells off!
