Living Tree Community Foods Organic Pistachio Butter is created in Berkeley, California from alive, raw organic pistachios grown in California's Central Valley by family farmers. We add our raw organic Black Sesame Oil, raw organic sesame seeds, organic honey and a dash of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt. It is produced slowly, in small batches, to give it a wondrous, creamy texture. This delightful and fresh nut butter will nourish your body and your taste buds!
In our proprietary process, we make the pistachio butter slowly, over several days. We slice the nuts and never grind. This preserves the flavors and properties of the raw pistachios. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it's always fresh and alive.
We are pleased that Living Tree Community Foods Organic Pistachio Butter was selected as a Silver Finalist in the 2012 SOFI Awards from the National Association for Specialty Food Trade. A panel of specialty food experts selected Living Tree Community Foods Organic Pistachio Butter as an excellent organic food product.

Pistachios are the most nutrient dense of all nuts Studies show that eating just 2.4 oz. (14 kernels) of pistachios each day could significantly lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol up to 4.9%! The pistachio is full of anti-oxidants, containing more cholesterol-lowering phytosterols than a cup of green tea! These little green powerhouses also have a high potency of gamma-tocopherol, otherwise known as vitamin E. Pistachios also provide high quantities of essential nutrients: thiamin, Vitamin B6, potassium, and lutein (anti-oxidant for eye health). In just one ounce, Pistachios supply 12% of the daily recommended amount of fiber, among the highest fiber provider of all nuts.
In addition to these benefits, the pistachio is a low fat and low calorie food, compared to other nuts, containing just 3 calories each. Furthermore, studies show that “two ounces per day could be incorporated into dietary strategies… without significant changes in body mass index”.
