The antioxidant value of Pine Nuts, Dried described in ORAC units is: 720 μ mol TE/100g.

They may be delicious in pesto but the sad truth is that that when you compare the ten most nutritious nuts, pine nuts rank dead last in antioxidant content. To add insult to injury, they are one of the most calorically dense, even more so than Brazil nuts.

With so few antioxidants and 87% of calories coming from fat, try an alternative for your recipes, if possible.
