THE pistachios they are a trending food especially in recent years. They are collected from the pistachio tree, of which they are the seeds, and can also be consumed plain or perhaps toasted and salted or in the form of delicious creams to spread on panettone, brioches, cakes and desserts of all kinds.
Pistachios are also widely used in the food industry to prepare products such as biscuits, cakes, brioches, ice creams and various fillings and are also used in the kitchen in the form of grain to complete a meat or fish dish, to decorate a dessert, but also to embellish certain types of pasta and to season a pizza.
Speaking in nutritional terms, pistachios are part of the dried fruit oily, together with walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts and are made up of over 55% of their weight in vegetable fats, i.e. those considered good for their many anti-inflammatory properties. All this raises the calorie content to approx 610 kCal for just 100g.
Pistachios also have a good fiber content which also helps to make us feel a good sense of satiety while also giving good health to our intestines. They contain few sugars, just 5 g for every 100 g of pistachios total while as regards the proteins, clearly of vegetal origin, they represent approximately 18% of the total weight of a single pistachio.
