Pine nut help!

I've got a lovely pasta recipe which calls for pine nuts. Not knowing their 
fat content, I went to the USDA database on the FatFree page. I found two 
types of pine nuts there, one apparently with a much higher fat content 
than the other. They are called pinyon (which is what we always called pine 
nuts in Israel, I might add) and pigniola. Can somebody tell me the 
difference and how to tell which one it is that I see in the store?

Thanks, Hadass
