Pistachios and Weight Management
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.
