Unsalted Pistachios

Unsalted Pistachios

The doctor just told you that you have to undergo a salt-restricted diet. If you are a pistachio nut lover you might be alarmed hearing this advise, but worry not. With unsalted pistachios, you can follow your doctor’s advice and have your pistachio nuts at the same time. Unlike most pistachio nuts that are salted and have high sodium content, unsalted pistachio nuts have high potassium and low-sodium content that helps maintain the water balance in our body, strengthen our muscles and normalize the blood pressure. Pistachio nuts, like all nuts, are a good source of protein; plus they are cholesterol free, low in saturated fats and high in fiber.

Choosing Your Pistachio

Unsalted pistachio nuts come in two types: the no shell pistachio and the one with shell. If you are out to buy the unsalted pistachio with shell, you should look for the green to nutty colored shell. Pistachios shells most often get stained and blemished during harvesting, which is the reason why the United States importers usually apply a non-toxic red vegetable dye to make it more appealing to the consumers. So, if you see those pink or red colored pistachio nuts shells, know that it only means that they have gone through the process of dying.
