Benefits of: Pistachios

If there was one nut that you should eat religiously, it would be the pistachio.
These Iranian-native nuts are one of the oldest nuts consumed in the world.

 

Pistachios are available today in various forms such as shelled, unshelled (kernels), sweetened or salted. At Pestacio, we carry Shamsi roast (lemon & sea salt), Akbari (lemon & salt), and Saffron roast, among the usual salted and unsalted pistachios.
Pistachios are best stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place to maintain freshness.
