The Skinny Nut


One of the reasons pistachios are called the “Skinny Nut” is because they’re a good source of fibre and protein. You’re likely to eat less but feel fuller, longer.  They are also one of the highest-fibre nuts.  Fibre helps control blood sugar, helps you feel full and aids with weight management.

Good Fats of supplied pistachio


While pistachios are a rich source of dietary fat (14g per 30g serving); almost 90% of the fat is the healthy unsaturated type, mono- and polyunsaturated. Monounsaturated fat, mostly as oleic acid, comprises 55% of the fat in pistachios. Researchers at UC Irvine recently identified an appetite-suppressing compound in oleic acid called oleoylethanolamide or OEA, which helps you feel fuller longer after a meal.

Phytosterols

Everybody’s talking about cholesterol. Well, pistachios can help support cardiovascular management thanks to something called phytosterols (a plant sterol found abundantly in pistachios) which actually compete with cholesterol from the diet for absorption.  Due to their nutritional composition or phytonutrients package, pistachios may be unique from other nuts in their ability to elevate healthy HDL cholesterol levels, when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat.
