Pistachios are not just a tasty, low calorie snack anymore. A new benefit may help you enjoy them even more. The protein quality of pistachios was assessed for the first time at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The study determined roasted pistachios contain all of the 9 essential amino acids necessary for supporting growth and maintaining health for those 5 years and older, therefore, they are a “Complete Protein.”

Pistachios join the ranks of a small number of plant proteins such as quinoa, chickpeas, and soybeans that have become popular among vegetarians and consumers who wish to move away from animal proteins. But pistachios are the only plant-based protein that is a complete protein.

Complete Protein Benefits of Eating Pistachios:

-They provide a convenient complete protein snack that portable and doesn’t require cooking.

-No need to combine two or more incomplete sources of protein. Now simply eat pistachios.

-They provide a meat alternative for vegans and vegetarians.

-They are a good cholesterol-free source of fiber, antioxidants, lutein, potassium, healthy fats and B-vitamins.
