General information about Pistachios
Pistachios are a very high quality plant source of protein, providing adequate and balanced amounts of essential amino acids. In addition, pistachios are relatively high in a nonessential amino acid, arginine, which may play a potential role in prevention or reduction of cardiovascular disease. (Arginine appears to help keep arteries flexible and enhance blood flow by boosting nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes blood vessels.) Many studies have found beneficial effects in people with heart and/or vascular disease who take arginine.

Pistachios are great tasting and full of nutrients. A one-ounce serving is a generous 49 nuts and contains more than 10% of the Daily Value for dietary fiber, vitamin B-6, thiamin, phosphorus and copper. While pistachios contain fat, the fat is predominantly monounsaturated, similar to that found in olive oil. Pistachios are known to contain compounds called phytochemicals - phytochemicals are substances that plants naturally produce to protect themselves against viruses, bacteria and fungi. While their exact role in promoting health is still uncertain, certain phytochemicals may help protect against some cancers, heart disease and other chronic health conditions. A comprehensive USDA study of the phytochemical content of fruits, vegetables and tree nuts is scheduled to be released later this year. More information on these newly recognized compounds in pistachios will provide further insight into plant-based diets and potential health benefits of consuming pistachios.
