Pistachio(Pista)

Pistachios are a nutritionally dense food. In a 100 gram serving, pistachios provide 562 calories and are a rich source (20% or more of the Daily Value or DV) of protein, dietary fiber, several dietary minerals and the B vitamins, thiamin and especially vitamin B6 at 131% DV (table).[35] Pistachios are a good source (10–19% DV) of calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, folate, vitamin E, and vitamin K (table). The fat profile of raw pistachios consists of saturated fats, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats.[35][36] Saturated fatty acids include palmitic acid (10% of total) and stearic acid (2%).[36] Oleic acid is the most common monounsaturated fatty acid (51% of total fat)[36] and linoleic acid, a polyunsaturated fatty acid, is 31% of total fat.[35] Relative to other tree nuts, pistachios have a lower amount of fat and calories but higher amounts of potassium, vitamin K, γ-tocopherol, and certain phytochemicals such as carotenoids and phytosterols.
