Pistachio Calorie and Fat Claims

An advertisement claims pistachios are the lowest calorie and lowest fat nut.

 Cashews have about the same calories and total fat as pistachios. And chestnuts are much lower in calories and fat than both, because they have a higher water content. But this is still missing the bigger point – each kind of nut has its own unique nutrition profile, and different benefits. Singling out one or two benefits and promoting one nut over all others based on that narrow criteria is misleading. One kind of nut may be higher in fiber and lower in fat than another, but the other could be a better source of certain vitamins and minerals. It’s best to eat a variety of nuts.
