One ounce, 30 g of raw pistachio nuts contains 170 calories, 13 g of fat, 6 g of protein and 3 g of fiber. Raw pistachios also contain 24 % of the recommended daily value of vitamin B-6, 18 % of the daily value of copper, 17 % of the daily value of manganese, 16 % of the daily value of thiamin and 14 % of the daily value of phosphorus.
Pistachios are cholesterol-free and high in monounsaturated fat, which is a good fat that will help protect you from heart attacks. The copper, magnesium, and B vitamins in pistachios all strengthen your immune system, making your body fit.
The negative side of these nuts is that they are always processed or flavored which are high in fat, sodium, and added chemicals or preservatives.Pistachio nuts are high in calories which are not suitable for weight loss programs and also cannot be taken in large amounts.Pistachio nuts can definitely be a part of a healthy diet.
