About This Food

Description

The pistachio, called the "happy nut" by the Chinese, requires little effort to shell and enjoy.

In fact, as the pistachio kernel grows, it expands within its shell and splits open naturally.

Widely consumed in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries, pistachios are an excellent source of vitamin B6 and provide plant sterols and monounsaturated fats.
