Calories in Nuts

Nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fats.

They are a better snack than a refined carb snack. One trial showed Pistachio nuts leading to weight loss (when compared with pretzels!).

Where possible nuts should be eaten raw (without salting or oiling).

Values listed here are generally for raw nuts (unless specified).
