Our Roasted and Salted Pistachios have a delicate and subtle taste that complements well with sweet and savoury dishes. They are an excellent source of protein and fibre, and are considered one of the lowest fat and lowest calorie tree nuts. The shells play an important role too. A study has shown that removing the shells may help you eat less and reduce calorie consumption, as they serve as a visual reminder of how much you’ve eaten.
The pistachio tree is, by nature, a drought-resistant plant that originated in the middle east, but precise applications of water at particular times in its growth cycle are critical to producing perfect pistachios. Growers work closely with university researchers, irrigation specialists, and University of California Cooperative Extension farm advisors to adopt the most progressive water management technology and irrigation programs in the world. Water used on pistachio farms is often recycled, not only for plant operations and tree nutrition, but to support wildlife and diverse habitat on farms and lands adjacent to pistachio orchards.
