The Food Guys: Pine Nut Versatile, Healthy
By Debra Goodwin and Al Harris
Pine nuts have something like 31 grams of protein per 100 grams of nuts — the
highest of any nut or seed. Pine nuts have been used as far back as the Paleolithic period and
are a good source of dietary fiber. They're an essential ingredient in pesto and
are excellent with meat, fish, and chicken recipes. They're also used in
chocolates and desserts like baklava.
