About Pistachio Nuts Roasted & Salted Jumbo
Roasting Pistachios brings out the flavour. Pistachios are a popular snack food and are a favourite in Indian and Mediterranean cuisines with a delicate, sweet flavour. Great in ice-cream, salads and pasta dishes as well. The shell splits open lengthways to reveal a green kernel, with a pinkish tinge.
Pistachio nuts have earned the name 'the skinny nut' due to their low calorie content. Considered to be one of the healthiest of all the tree nuts, pistachios are an excellent source of fibre, potassium and nutrients. Recent studies suggest that eating small amounts of pistachios daily may lower blood cholesterol levels and in turn lower the risk of heart disease.
