Vitamin B1, B6, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium and iron are the main vitamin and mineral groups contained in pistachios [1]. A lack of vitamin B affects us mentally, making us more irritable and moody. The body needs vitamin B6 for a well-functioning protein metabolism and iron for enhanced physical and mental performance.

Research has shown that the polyunsaturated fatty acids contained in nuts lower blood cholesterol levels, stabilise blood sugar values, strengthen the vessels, reduce the risk of contracting cancer of the stomach or prostate and suffering heart attacks, and inhibit inflammatory reactions. [2]

Description:

Our pistachio kernels with skin not only look attractive, but have a typical very nutty flavour and are first-rate quality. The pistachios are of a whole range of colours, from delicate lilac to a warm green hue.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic pistachio exclusively from a remote mountainous region in Uzbekistan / Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic farming and are worked by the local organic farmers at harvesting time only. The farmers in this area have complied with organic cultivation criteria for many years and are proud of their contribution towards sustaining the natural balance.

Pistachios are gently harvested when the ripe outer shell of the pistachio fruit turns pink and a gap opens in it, so that the actual nut inside becomes visible. After careful harvesting the pistachio shell is removed. The green kernels are then gently sun-dried. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.

Product purity:

The pistachios are pressure treated and laser cleaned in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic pistachios are checked individually.

Why you should germinate our nuts!

Germinating nuts: 

 Inhibits and reduces levels of phytic acids

Phytic acids occur in natural foods, inhibiting digestion of minerals. Reducing amounts of phytic acids allows the minerals to be absorbed by the body, providing it with the associated benefits [1].

  • Inhibits and reduces tannins

The plant deploys tannins for its own protection. When excessive amounts of tannins are digested, flatulence (digestive problems) may result and consumption of iron and calcium (or minerals) may be reduced [2].

  • neutralises enzyme inhibitors

The human body needs certain reactions to take place in order to function efficiently, and certain enzymes are needed for these reactions. If the enzymes are functionally inhibited, the body can’t work optimally. That’s why it’s important to reduce inhibition to a minimum.

  • Supports generation of useful enzymes and
  • Increases vitamin levels, especially B vitamins

The germination processes cause the plant to start budding again. Many important vital substances are activated and mobilised, for example vitamins and enzymes. This makes germinated nuts considerably more nutritious than nuts that are not germinated.

How to germinate the nuts:

Good results are obtained when the nuts are placed into lukewarm water in the evening and left overnight. The nuts will have germinated by the next morning. If you have more nuts than you need in the morning, store them in the refrigerator without the water. If you want to keep them for a longer period, you can dry the nuts on a dry surface or in the oven.

Depending on the foodstuff used, germination periods are generally around 7 to 24 hours.
