Pistachios

Pistachios contain plenty of protein and other vital nutrients. They are also a source of healthful fatty acids and antioxidants.

The popular green nut is technically a seed of the pistachio tree, but people generally view it as a nut due to its appearance and feel.

A study published in Nutrition Today noted that eating pistachios has a beneficial effect on blood pressure and endothelial function, which may lead to a reduced risk of heart-related health issues.

According to the USDA database, every 100 g of pistachios contains 560 calories and the following nutrient quantities:

  • protein: 20.16 g
  • fat: 45.32 g
  • carbohydrate: 27.17 g
  • fiber: 10.60 g
  • sugar: 7.66 g

Healthful monounsaturated fatty acids and PUFAs make up most of the fat content in pistachios.

While pistachios offer fewer minerals than some other nuts, they contain a substantial 1,025 mg of potassium per 100 g.

Other notable vitamins and minerals in pistachios include:

  • calcium: 105 mg
  • iron: 3.92 mg
  • magnesium: 121 mg
  • phosphorous: 490 mg
