Pistachio Calory

Pistachio shines like a diamond among other nuts and has many fans. As one of the delicious and nutritious nuts, pistachio is consumed all year round. This attractive nut contains minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium, manganese, and magnesium and has numerous properties. If you want to be healthy and strong, we recommend you to include pistachio in your diet. But in order to know the right amount to consume, you should know the exact amount of calories in pistachios.

Calorie and health

Human body needs calories to survive. Without energy, the body’s cells die, the heart and lungs stop, and the organs are unable to perform the necessary basic processes to live. Individuals absorb this energy from food and drink. If each person consumes only the required number of calories daily, he/she will probably have a healthy life. Receiving too few or too many calories will eventually lead to health problems.

The number of calories in foods tells us how much potential energy they have. Below are the calorific values (fuel) of the three main food elements:

  •   1 gram of carbohydrate contains 4 kcal.
  •  1 gram of protein contains 4 kcal.
  •  1 gram of fat contains 9 kcal.

For example, the following section shows how to get calories from 100 grams of pistachio kernels:

43 grams of fat

9*43 = 387 kcal

20 grams of protein

4*20 = 80 kcal

26 grams of carbohydrates

 4*26 = 104 kcal

100 grams of raw pistachio kernels contain 570 kcal, 387 kcal of fat, 80 kcal of protein, and 104 kcal of carbohydrates.

Pistachio calories

Pistachio is a complete food and is rich in nutrients and useful substances that play an effective role in maintaining and ensuring human health. Pistachio as a healthy and natural snack is one of the popular foods among all ages and its consumption is recommended for children, adolescents, athletes, and pregnant and lactating women. But pistachio has high calories. There are 606 calories in 100 grams of pistachio and each pistachio seed has about 8 calories. Therefore, using about 50 grams of raw pistachio daily is useful and will not cause the accumulation of excess fat in the body. Do not fear high amounts of fat in pistachio, because most of these fats are unsaturated and useful for the body. If you consume too much pistachio in one meal, make balance by aerobic exercises, walking and group games.
