A pistachio or two daily could help reduce cholesterol levels, a new study suggests. The study released at the 2001 Experimental Biology annual conference was conducted at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia and adds to the scientific evidence that demonstrates monounsaturated fat, without lowering total fat, can have positive health benefits. Monounsaturated fats are found in food sources such as pistachios, avocados and olive oil. A one-ounce serving of pistachios (47 according to the USDepartment of Agriculture) contains more than 10 per cent of the Daily Value for key nutrients like dietary fibre, vitamin B-6, thiamin, magnesium, phosphorus and copper. Pistachios are also low in saturated fat and are cholesterol-free. Source: California Pistachio Commission
