- Pine nuts contain nutrients that help boost energy, including monounsaturated fat, protein, and iron. Pine nuts are also a good source of magnesium, low levels of which can lead to fatigue.
- If you’re trying to lose weight, eating pine nuts may help. Research showed that fatty acids derived from pine nuts lead to the release of high amounts of cholecystokinin (CCK), an appetite-suppressing hormone.
- Storage: Unshelled pine nuts have a long shelf life if kept dry and refrigerated (−5 °C (23 °F) to 2 °C (36 °F)); shelled nuts (and unshelled nuts in warm conditions) deteriorate rapidly, becoming rancid within a few weeks or even days in warm humid conditions. To best preserve them, its recomended to store them in a fully airtigh container and then freeze them to preserve their flavor.
