Iranian Dried Fruit Products

Fandoghi pistachios

One of the most significant dried fruits and goods produced in Iran, pistachios have a convoluted global reputation for quality. Iranian pistachios are delicious and have an opulent, appealing appearance. Iranian pistachios can be broadly categorized into two types: round and elongated. The fandoghi pistachio is a small, spherical, round pistachio that is also known as the hazelnut (fandoghi) pistachio because of its shape, which is similar to the hazelnut fruit. It is also one of the most reasonably priced pistachios in Iran. The reason local sales and exports are particularly successful is because of pricing and the few pistachio seeds per kilo.

This has the highest yield and is round in shape. Additionally, it comes in sizes 28/30, 30/32, and 32/34. This pistachio has a high ounce weight, which accounts for its diminutive size. This pistachio is delicious and has a lot of color.

What advantages do pistachios have?

The US Food and Drug Administration originally asserted in July 2003 that certain nuts, particularly pistachios, specifically lower the risk of heart disease. Scientific data indicates that consuming 1.5 ounces (42.5 grams) of most nuts, such as pistachios, daily as part of a diet low in saturated fats and low in cholesterol will reduce the risk of heart disease. This claim was founded on this.
