The jumbo-sized raw pistachio meats we’re bringing you are simply the best! And, what a great deal of $3 OFF the regular price for a 6-ounce container.

I buy these meats from a family-owned and -operated farm in Terra Bella, California. These pistachios are picked at full maturity, so we are guaranteeing excellent flavor, and more importantly, all of the superb natural health benefits you can reap from pistachios.

Here are a few reasons why pistachios, especially RAW pistachios, are so great for you. For a 1-ounce serving, raw pistachios provide 10% of the daily value for:

  • Dietary fiber
  • Vitamin B6
  • Thiamin
  • Phosphorus
  • Copper

Raw pistachios are also rich in:

  • Phytosterols, which directly aid in lowering cholesterol levels
  • Monounsaturated (healthy) fats
  • High-quality plant sources of protein, providing essential and non-essential amino acids

Try raw pistachios in:

  • Fresh fruit or vegetable smoothies
  • Trail mixes
  • All types of salads
  • Stuffing
  • Focaccia bread (add to bread after heating to keep them raw for best nutritional benefits)
  • Pizza (after it’s baked to keep the pistachio meats raw to retain its nutritional benefits)
  • Baked goodies, such as cookies
