Did you know that a one-ounce serving of pistachios is 49 nuts – more nuts per serving than any other snack nut? Those 49 nuts contain just 160 calories, and are also packed with nutrients your body needs to stay healthy.
The act of opening each pistachio shell to get out the nut slows down the eating process, which can lead to greater satisfaction and fullness after eating.1
Research suggests that a diet including pistachios may help with weight management. Plus emerging research suggests that eating pistachios in the shell can help to manage the serving size eaten without compromising fullness. Read more about pistachio science related to weight management.
Did you know that pistachios may have fewer calories than previously thought?
Research suggests that the fat in pistachios isn’t completely metabolized. This means that when we eat pistachios, we may absorb fewer calories than originally estimated.2

Discover why nuts are associated with less weight gain.
A study supported by the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council (INC) reinforces that consuming nuts is associated with less weight gain and lower risk of becoming overweight or obese. It also reinforces dietary recommendations to increase nut consumption in order to reduce the risk of chronic disease and mortality.1
