Bulk Organic Pistachios

Pistachios might just be the healthiest nuts Mother Earth has to offer. This could be because, like cashews, they are actually a fruit, not a nut. Like other green fruits and vegetables, pistachios are green from the high levels of chlorophyll. These green “nuts” are one of the few nuts that contain nearly all of the nutrients that are vital for complete health.  Pistachios contain nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats, dietary fiber, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, vitamin B-6, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, vitamin C, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, vitamin E, vitamin A, and vitamin K. The health benefits of pistachios include a healthy heart, weight management, protection against diabetes and hypertension, and improved digestion. Pistachios distinctly sweet flavor work equally as well in sweet and savory dishes.
