Description Ingredients
 
Dazzle your senses with vibrant yellow-green color and a sweet smooth taste. Our organic, raw pistachios are grown in California. Once ripe, they naturally crack open making it easy to shell them in a low-temperature process. Our Pistachio Kernels are bits of the colorful flesh, wonderfully sized for easy addition to recipes. The Pistachio “nut” is actually classified as a fruit – a yummy one! Pistachios are a cousin of mangoes. They are one of the oldest living trees; one of only two nuts mentioned in the Torrah/Bible (Genisis 43:11). In Iran, Pistachios are known as the "smiling nut," and in China, the "happy nut." May they bring you great joy!

Among "nuts", pistachios are one of the most nutritious varieties. In relation to their calorie value (160 calories per ounce), pistachios are rich in many nutrients. A one-ounce serving of pistachios offers more than 30 different vitamins, minerals and beneficial phytonutrients. Low in cholesterol and sodium, Pistachios help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.
