Pistachio nuts have earned the name "the skinny nut" due to their low calorie content. Considered to be one of the healthiest of all the tree nuts, pistachios are an excellent source of fibre, potassium and nutrients. Recent studies suggest that eating small amounts of pistachios daily may lower blood cholesterol levels and in turn lower the risk of heart disease.
These pistachio kernels are raw, meaning they have not been processed above 42 degrees and have a slightly chewy texture as they retain more moisture than the roasted pistachios.
