are you really the first pistachio spread in the US?

we’re not, as you’ve probably run before into some pistachio butter of some sort. but we are on a mission of making pistachios more fun and more approachable, unlike what’s been done so far. we think pistachios are way more than just a nut and we wanted to make something that feels authentic and can be used in the everyday meals!

are pistachios good for you?

incredibly! pistachios are among the healthiest nuts and are packed with nutrients. the fact that so little people know about their infinite benefits was one of the reasons that pushed us to create Pistakio! here are just a handful of the tons of properties pistachios are packed with:

healthy heart: pistachios are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while increasing the levels of HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood.

complete protein: pistachios are a complete protein, which means they contain all the 9 essential amino acids. while having more protein than tofu and chickpea and being great for muscle recovery, they are also good for promoting an overall well-being.

high in antioxidants: pistachios are packed with antioxidants, especially vitamin E, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are known to improve skin health, eye health, and decrease the risk of chronic disease.

good for your gut: pistachios are a great source of dietary fibers, which improve gut health. gut health is linked to better immunity and better and more stable mood.

better sleep: pistachios contain the amino acid tryptophan, which can contribute to better sleep quality. tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin and melatonin, neurotransmitters involved in sleep regulation.

who started Pistakio?

two pistachio fanatics, Nico and Fran, who want to celebrate the deliciousness and versatility of pistachios and the Italian “nonni” way of life, centered around building strong relationships, enjoying the little things of life, and good food (of course). you can find more about us here.

what's your WHY?

that we love pistachios is not a big mystery. but we’re on a mission to reimagine the way pistachios have been eaten for centuries so that you can spread their deliciousness and infinite health benefits on anything you want. we want pistachios to be literally one spoon away from your favorite meals.

our journey is also deeply inspired by the Italian culture, rooted in the love for other people, having a good time, and delicious food, which is what we value the most!

btw, you misspelled pistachio!

not quite! our name comes from the Italian pronunciation of pistachios — “pistacchio”, to celebrate the roots and inspiration of this journey, Italian grandparents, proud holders of a lifestyle centered around good food & good people.


where are your spreads made?

we hand-craft our spreads in small batches in Portland, OR.

are your spreads vegan?

yes, our spreads are 1000% vegan. they’re also gluten-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, soy-free. and, most important, almond-free!

refrigerate after opening?

yes & no! our sweet spread can be kept outside of the fridge in a cool & dry place for as long as you want (we recommend eating it before 6 months), but you can also refrigerate it for a thicker texture.

is your packaging recyclable?

yes, our packaging is 1000% recyclable, but we suggest also reusing the jars. need ideas? you can use them for anything from pickling veggies, making succulent planters, to small candle holders or storing other sauces.
