Vital ingredients:

Pistachios are a good source of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. They´re perfect for a balanced, varied and healthy diet.

Pistachios are particularly rich in vitamins B1, B6, manganese, magnesium and iron [1 and 4]. Vitamin B1 deficiency can affect mental functioning, making us more irritable and moodier. The body needs vitamin B6 for efficient protein metabolism and iron to boost performance.

Pistachios have a very high antioxidant capacity of 7675 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). Consumption of foods rich in antioxidants strengthens the body´s defence mechanisms, balancing out excess production of free radicals. The recommended daily ORAC requirement is between 5000 and 7000 [5].

Polyunsaturated fatty acids present in nuts have been proven to reduce blood cholesterol levels, stabilise blood sugar, fortify the vessels, reduce the risk of stomach and prostate cancer and infarcts, and inhibit inflammation. [2]

Melatonin occurs very rarely in plant-based foods. Pistachios have the highest level of melatonin (up to 23,300 µg/100 g dry weight). After eating pistachios, melatonin levels increase significantly. The consumption of foods rich in melatonin induces better sleep. [3]

Origin and drying:

The pale shell and light brown skin cover the nut, a delicate green colour with a typical, aromatic taste and special quality. Our raw pistachios are grown at one of the first farms in Spain to cultivate the nut. Since 1988, the nuts have been farmed in Castile-La Mancha, famous for its links to Don Quixote.
