Exclusive RAW pistachio butter made from activated pistachios. Enjoy the best quality and flavor that you can hardly find elsewhere.
Pistachios are small nuts originating from the pistachio tree (Pistacia vera), a tree native to the Middle East but now cultivated in many parts of the world. This crop has a long history and is among the first types of nuts ever cultivated by humans. One of the distinctive features of pistachios is their vibrant green color. This intense green hue is the result of the presence of chlorophyll, the same pigment that gives plants their green color.
In terms of flavor, pistachios have a rich, nutty taste with a slight hint of saltiness. They are a popular snack and are used in various dishes, both sweet and savory. They are also often used as an ingredient in desserts, salads, and are a favorite addition to ice cream and cookies.
A completely unique pistachio butter with several key features:
- Handcrafted Production - The butter is meticulously crafted in small batches, from harvesting to grinding, with love and care.
- Nut Activation - Pistachios are soaked in water for 8 hours, initiating the sprouting process, which neutralizes inhibitors and antinutritional phytates, making the seeds more digestible and increasing the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals.
- RAW Quality - The seeds are processed at low temperatures (up to 42°C), ensuring that all the essential nutrients and delicate sesame flavors are preserved. This means you can enjoy the full range of sesame's flavors and beneficial compounds.
- Vegan and 100% Natural - The butter is vegan and contains no additional ingredients such as palm oil, preservatives, or sugar.
- Local Production - Local nut production and processing minimize long-distance transportation, reducing the environmental impact associated with shipping and maintaining product freshness. It also supports the local economy, creates job opportunities, gives producers control over production, and increases transparency throughout the process.
- Regenerative Agroforestry - The Pemla company, which produces nut butters and collaborates with crop growers, adheres to a regenerative agroforestry approach. This approach involves a modern perspective on agriculture and forestry, with the aim of restoring and improving soil and ecosystems. It emphasizes sustainable soil care, including erosion reduction, soil preservation, and crop diversification. This involves practices such as crop rotation, composting, and limiting the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It also places importance on sustainable water management and biodiversity conservation in forestry, with the goal of supporting local communities and social justice.
What does consuming pistachios bring you?
- Healthy Fats - they are rich in healthy fats, especially monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can contribute to lower LDL cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Vitamins and Minerals - pistachios are a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B6, thiamin, phosphorus, manganese, and magnesium, which are important for the proper functioning of the body. They also contain selenium and beta-carotene, among other nutrients.
- Antioxidants - they contain many antioxidants. In addition to vitamin E, pistachios contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect the eyes. They also contain a variety of polyphenols (including gallic acid, caffeic acid, and resveratrol) and flavonoids (such as quercetin and kaempferol) with anti-inflammatory properties.
- Blood Sugar Control - some studies suggest that pistachios may help lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.
- Heart Health - regular consumption has been associated with a reduced risk of heart disease and improvements in lipid profiles.
- Weight Management - pistachios can help maintain a feeling of fullness due to their high fiber and protein content, which can aid people in weight control.
