    Red Pistachios
    By Ed G from Batavia, Illinois on December 18, 2012
    My 23 year old daughter never saw red pistachios before so I ordered these nuts for her. The nuts were fresh tasting but there were a lot of empty shells in the order. The nuts were average in size and had a good flavor. She did not like the red finger tips from eating these nuts. I would like to give a higher rating but the high number of empty shells dropped the rating. I would order the natural nut the next time.
    Pros:
    Fresh and good tasting nuts
    Cons:
    lots of empty shells

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Pistachios, salt and artificial color.
    One ounce of pistachios (about 49 kernels) is an excellent source critical vitamins and minerals, particularly copper, manganese, vitamin B6, thiamin, and phosphorus. Like all nuts, pistachios are rich in fiber, are a great source of protein, are cholesterol-free, and are chock full of monounsaturated fats. However, unlike other nuts pistachios contain significant amounts of the carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin. Carotenoids are a special type of antioxidant linked to color, and associated with reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration, one of the most common causes of irreversible blindness in older adults.

    Anyone who yearns for the good old days, when “men were men” and pistachios were red, will enjoy a taste of these addictively delicious nuts. It’s been years since Red Pistachios were just about the only pistachios you could get, but many folks remember them with great fondness. In fact, some were surprised to learn that red was not the natural color of the actual nuts—they’re generally solid beige, perhaps tinged with a little green, no matter where in the world they’re grown. Our premium pistachios just happen to come straight to us from specialty growers in California.

    So why were they red, once upon a time? The most common explanation goes like this: Back in the 1920’s and 1930’s, virtually all pistachios were imported from outside the U.S. and were picked and processed by hand, which tended to blemish the shells due to stains resulting from the natural oils in the workers’ hands. Seeing this, importers would apply red food coloring to cover the blemishes and present a better-looking nut that stood out from other nuts, leading to higher sales. Evidently it worked, as the red pistachios became so popular that they began to be grown and processed domestically.

    It wasn’t long before machines took over the picking and processing of the domestic crop, so the red dye was no longer “needed.” Still, many remember the reddish stains that would appear on the hands and tongue after enjoying a few pistachios—and woe to anyone who got “caught red-handed” sneaking a few luscious pistachios from someone else’s stash! Today, however, it’s more of a nostalgic touch than anything, but it’s all part of the fun. For those who want to step back in time, we’re proud to offer real Red Pistachios just the way they used to be. A great gift idea—enjoy!

    Red Pistachios (1 Pound Bag)
    Question: Why do I not see the red pistachios sold in stores today? Is it because of the red dye?
    Answer: It's just because the demand for the product is not high. You may find some specialty stores that still carry them.

    Question: Are red pistachios salted?
    Answer: Yes, our red pistachios are lightly salted.
