IRANIAN PISTACHIOS - ROASTED & SALTED
Pistachios are tiny, but pack a powerful nutritional punch. These small nuts contain protein, fiber and a wealth of vitamins and minerals. Adding pistachios to your healthy eating plan might also benefit your heart.
Pistachios contain 5.94 grams of protein and 2.8 grams of fiber in 1 ounce. The same serving of pistachios supplies 1.14 grams of iron toward your daily requirement of 8 to 18 milligrams. You need plenty of iron to support a healthy immune system, prevent fatigue and form red blood cells. A 1-ounce serving of pistachios provides 133 milligrams of the 700 milligrams of phosphorus you need each day. Phosphorus helps support a strong skeleton. A serving of pistachios also contains 0.69 milligrams of vitamin E toward your daily goal of 15 milligrams. This nutrient prevents cell damage and aids your body in making red blood cells. A drawback to pistachios is that one serving of the roasted and salted variety contains 121 milligrams of sodium. Too much sodium contributes to heart disease and high blood pressure.
