Mumbai, Nov 3 : The Indian office of American Pistachios Growers (APG) had organised a knowledge session to talk about the nutritional properties in pistachios recently here that was attended by leading food and lifestyle influencers.
The session especially focused on a recent study conducted by Cornell University and published in the Journal Nutrients in 2022 that found that the antioxidant capacity of pistachios rivals that of popular antioxidant-containing foods, including blueberries, pomegranates, cherries and red wine.
Antioxidants help protect healthy cells from free radical damage in the body.
Pistachios are also low in calories when compared to other nuts. One serving of pistachios (49 nuts) is only 160 calories, making them a great anytime guilt-free snack.
On the occasion, celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani showcased healthy recipes featuring American pistachios, highlighting their high quality, versatility, and creativity on every plate, a press release said here on Friday.
