American Pistachio Growers
Pistachios have been recognized as a complete protein. That means they contain the essential amino acids that make up protein that your body can’t produce on its own and must get from food.
Pistachios join meat, fish, dairy and eggs as a complete protein source. One serving has six grams of protein –as much as an egg!
Pistachios are heart healthy, full of fiber, potsassium, antioxidants and B-vitamins.
They’re a portable snack you can eat right out of the shell or add to your favorite recipe.
