Pistachios are the dried fruits of a tree originating in the mountain ranges of Wes-Asian region. Dry climates with cool winters are the ideal place for pistachios to grow. Pistachio orchards are in the United States, Syria, Turkey, Iran and China. It can take almost eight years for a first major crop, but once production starts these trees continue to bear fruit for centuries. The seed of the fruit is the edible part, and they grow similar to a grape cluster.
TRACE-MINERAL POWERHOUSE: These nuts satisfy over 144% of the daily recommended levels of copper, which is a trace mineral essential in neuro-transmission, metabolism as well as red blood cell synthesis. Some of the other minerals found in pistachios are potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and selenium. They also have over 50% of the daily recommended amounts of iron, manganese and phosphorous. Many of these trace minerals are essential for healthy bones, immune system function, nervous and endocrine systems.
WEIGHT LOSS: Pistachios are about 160 calories per one ounce serving. A one ounce serving of pistachios is about 40 nuts. New research by the USDA shows that the fat in the pistachio is not completely metabolized. When eaten, pistachios have fewer calories absorbed than what is on the label. Pistachios mostly are purchased in-shell. Removal of the shells slows down consumption and helps a person feel full faster than if eaten by the handful.
EYE HEALTH: Pistachios have more lutein than any other nut. Lutein is an antioxidant that also in green and yellow vegetables. This antioxidant is known to support eye health.
BLOOD GLUCOSE MANAGEMENT: Research has examined connections between blood glucose levels and pistachios. Studies suggest the nutritional profile of pistachios help maintain healthy blood glucose control. Pistachios can minimize a rise in blood glucose levels when added to a meal with a high carbohydrates, compared to when the pistachios are consumed by themselves.
The pistachio is native to the middle east, which is why it is commonly used in baklava and other middle eastern sweets. However, these delicious nuts are also grown in Asia and America and you will find them in many salads, as a topping or crust on fish, in sweet desserts and other dishes.
