Nutrition

Health authorities worldwide recommend eating nuts for good health.

Research indicates eating nuts 5-7 times per week can halve your risk of developing heart disease.  Enjoying nuts regularly as part of a balanced diet may also reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Due to the fibre and high amount of protein found in most nuts, nuts can manage weight by satisfying hunger for longer.  Nuts also naturally contain a broad range of important vitamins, minerals and other healthy elements.

Pistachios are a source of mono-unsaturated fat, folate and Vitamin E.  They are high in protein, dietary fibre, potassium and Vitamins A and B6.  They are one of the highest sources of plant sterols of any food.  Pistachios are naturally free of cholesterol.
