Pistachios may help with weight management
In a first-of-its-kind study with nuts, randomized controlled-feeding research conducted by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) found that fat in pistachios may not be completely absorbed by the body. The findings indicate that pistachios may actually contain fewer calories per serving than originally thought, reinforcing that pistachios are one of the lowest calorie nuts with 160 calories per 30 g serving (approximately 1 oz). The study was presented on April 11 at the Experimental Biology conference in Washington, D.C. (Source IFT. June 2011)
