Pistachios are a delicious and versatile nut that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. They have a unique flavour that is both sweet and savoury, and they can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes.
We produce a Nut Butter that contains Almonds and Pistachios.
Think Almond Butter but a little but sweeter. The pistachio's in this nut butter add a little sweetness to the familiar and common roast flavour of the Almond Butter.
The flavour of pistachios is due to a number of different compounds, including:
- Alpha-pinene: This compound gives pistachios their characteristic piney flavour.
- Beta-pinene: This This compound has a similar flavour to alpha-pinene, but it is less intense.
- Limonene: This compound gives pistachios a citrusy flavour
- Linalool: This compound has a floral flavour
- Terpinen-4-ol: This compound has a camphoraceous flavour.
The flavour of pistachios can also be affected by the way they are processed. Roasted pistachios have a more intense flavour than raw pistachios. Salted pistachios have a salty flavour, of course.
