Product Details

Live Superfoods Raw Pistachios

Pistachios are one of the oldest flowering nut trees, and have been enjoyed for at least 9,000 years. Thanks to their high nutritional value and long storage life, pistachios were an indispensable travel item among early explorers and traders, including travelers across the ancient Silk Road that connected China with the West.

In Iran, pistachios are known as the “smiling nut.” In China, they're called the “happy nut.” Pistachios are also known as the "green almond.” The green color in pistachios comes from lutein, which helps to prevent the most common form of blindness in older adults, and may help prevent or slow down atherosclerosis, the thickening of arteries, which is a major risk for cardiovascular disease.

Nutrient dense: When stacked up against other nuts like almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts and macadamias, pistachios trump them all in thiamin, vitamin B-6, potassium, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, and total phytosterols (which compete with cholesterol from the diet for absorption). They’re also an excellent source of protein, fiber, copper and manganese.

Pistachios are also known for nutrients like arginine, an amino acid that plays an important role in the cardiovascular system.

Healthy fats: We all need some fat in our diet. Fat adds flavor and helps us feel full longer. The trick is to choose foods that contain good, unsaturated fats as opposed to bad, saturated fats. Pistachios are a great choice of snack because they contain almost 90% unsaturated fat.

Antioxidants: Oxidation is a process that creates free radicals in the body, which can be harmful to your cells. Pistachios offer many different antioxidants including lutein, beta-carotene, and gamma-tocopherol, which can help to support the heart and the body from oxidation.

Our raw, certified organic pistachios are dried at low temperatures in their shell, and are sodium-free.
