What is the difference between pistachios and pistachio kernels?

Pistachios and pistachio kernels are related but refer to different parts of the pistachio nut.

Pistachios: Pistachios are the whole nuts that are harvested from the pistachio tree (scientifically known as Pistacia vera). They have a hard outer shell, which encloses the edible kernel inside. The shell is usually slightly opened, revealing a small opening from where the kernel can be extracted. Pistachios are commonly enjoyed as a snack and are also used in various culinary applications.

Pistachio Kernels: Pistachio kernels, also known as pistachio nuts or just “kernels,” are the edible seeds found inside the shells of pistachios. Once the outer shell is cracked open, the kernel can be easily removed and consumed. Pistachio kernels have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor and are commonly used in cooking, baking, and as a topping or ingredient in various dishes and desserts.

In summary, pistachios are the whole nuts that include the shell and the kernel, while pistachio kernels specifically refer to the edible seeds found inside the shells of pistachios.

How many Pistachio Kernels per day?

The number of pistachio kernels you consume per day can vary depending on your individual dietary needs, preferences, and overall health. Pistachios are a nutritious snack but also contain calories and fat, so it’s important to consume them in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

The American Heart Association recommends consuming about 1.5 ounces (about 42.5 grams) of nuts, including pistachios, as part of a heart-healthy diet. This roughly translates to around 49 pistachio kernels per day, as there are approximately 49 kernels in 1 ounce of pistachios.

However, it’s important to note that this is a general guideline, and individual needs may vary. It’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian who can provide personalized recommendations based on your specific health goals and dietary requirements.
