You can get more dietary fiber from a serving of pistachios than a 1/2 cup of broccoli or spinach.
- A serving of pistachios has as much thiamin as a 1/2 cup serving of cooked rice. The amount of vitamin B-6 in a one-ounce serving of pistachios is comparable to a standard three-ounce serving of pork or chicken.
- One serving of pistachios has as much potassium as half a large banana. Pistachios are a very high quality plant source of protein, providing adequate and balanced amounts of essential amino acids. In addition, pistachios are relatively high in a nonessential amino acid, arginine, which may play a potential role in prevention or reduction of cardiovascular disease. While pistachios contain fat, the fat is predominantly monounsaturated, similar to that found in olive oil.
