Kalle Ghouchi Pistachios
The pistachio known as “Kalle Ghouchi” is regarded as one of the more expensive and high-quality varieties available. This variety of pistachio has both domestic and international markets that are ideal for it, and it is shipped in significant quantities each year. This particular variety of pistachio grows slowly and has very low leaf surfaces, which makes it difficult for the sun to harm the pistachio fruit.
One benefit of using this kind of pistachio is the popularity and fame of Kalle Ghouchi pistachio, which can be ascribed to the coarseness of the pistachio kernel as well as its extremely good taste and affordable pricing. Of course, it is true that the ram’s head pistachio resembles the hazelnut variety in appearance, but in reality, this variety is larger and heavier than the hazelnut variety, which explains why there are fewer pistachios per kilo.
What kind of nutrition do pistachios provide?
Pistachios are 4% water, 45% fat, 28% carbohydrate, and 20% protein in their raw state. Pistachios are a great source of protein, dietary fiber, numerous minerals, and B group vitamins like thiamin and vitamin B6, and 100 grams of them have 562 calories. Calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, folate, vitamin E, and vitamin K are all moderately abundant in pistachios. Saturated and unsaturated fats are present in raw pistachios. Palmitic acid and stearic acid are two of their saturated fatty acids. Oleic acid makes over 51% of the total fat in pistachios, making it the most prevalent unsaturated fatty acid.
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.
