Pistachio Craze: Why Everyone’s Going Nuts for This Superfood

daily Views  

Pistachios are called the queen of nuts due to their high nutritional value, containing vitamins, minerals, and quality fats. They are trendy among women due to their ability to improve gut health and prevent skin and hair from drying out. Recently, a particular dessert has been catching the eye among the plethora of options available – the charmingly hued pistachio dessert. With its subtle fragrance and rich flavor, we’ve gathered everything from the best places to enjoy pistachio desserts to the benefits of pistachios.

What is a Pistachio?

In China, the pistachio is called 開心果, meaning happy fruit. Pistachios are a nut that brings joy to your hands, eyes, and mouth. The hard shell is slightly split, making it fun to peel with the fingertips. The soft, pastel-colored flesh that emerges when you remove the shell is visually pleasing, and the rich, subtly sweet flavor that becomes more pronounced as you chew brings joy to your palate.

How many calories are in Pistachios?

Nuts are currently popular as a diet food. Among them, pistachios have the lowest calorie and fat content, making them even more effective for dieting. A single serving of pistachios (30g) contains 160 calories, which is lower than the same amount of almonds (170 calories) or walnuts (190 calories). The fat content is also lower in pistachios (13g) compared to almonds (15g) and walnuts (18g).

What are the Health Benefits of Pistachios?

Pistachios are rich in nutrients and greatly assist in maintaining energy balance. The flavonoids in pistachios activate the production of metabolic heat, preventing the body from shivering in the cold and helping to maintain body temperature. Additionally, the lutein in pistachios protects the eye’s retina from ultraviolet rays reflected off the snow.

What are the effects of Pistachios?

Pistachios are a source of plant-based protein and are suitable for complete protein, which helps build and maintain muscles. They contain no cholesterol, fiber, antioxidants, lutein, potassium, healthy fats, and Vitamin B, which help recharge and recover the body before and after exercise.

Do Pistachios Have Dieting Benefits?

Pistachios are famous for their dieting effects. A study revealed that if you peel and eat the shells of pistachios yourself, you consume about 41% fewer calories than if you eat pre-shelled ones. The time taken to remove pistachio shells is a barrier, causing one to eat slowly and less.

Are there Side Effects to Eating Pistachios?

Pistachios are a type of nut belonging to the cashew family, so they are allergies. Natural pistachios have very low sodium content, but roasted pistachios sold in stores have a very high sodium content, so those with cardiovascular diseases should be cautious. The phragmites in pistachios can also cause digestive issues like indigestion or diarrhea.

Pistachios as a Complete Protein Food

Nuts are a healthy diet snack that provides a feeling of fullness due to their abundant protein, vitamins, and dietary fiber. Surprisingly high in calories, pistachios have the lowest calorie content among nuts, earning them the nickname skinny nut. They are also popular among models as a healthy late-night snack. Moreover, pistachios are one of the few plant-based foods that contain all nine essential amino acids, making them a complete protein food.
