A consumer research shows that Indians are slowly moving on from traditional gifting options like sweets to healthier options owing to the increasing cases of adulteration reported in Indian sweets. Now, ditching sweets, people are opting for dry fruits such as cashews, pistachios and almonds.

Pistachios are nutrient rich and full of antioxidants, vitamins, protein and fiber. A one-ounce serving of pistachios equals 49 nuts, more per serving than any other snack nut. They are cholesterol free and contain just 1.5 grams of saturated fat and 12.5 grams of fat per serving, the majority of which comes from mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fat.
