Amygdalin is a naturally occurring substance found in apricot kernels. When amygdalin is ingested, it converts to cyanide in your body. Cyanide is a fast-acting, potentially deadly chemical. You should not eat more than 3 small kernels per day. Children should not eat apricot kernels. On January 25, 2020, Health Canada established a maximum level (ML) of 20 ppm total extractable cyanide in apricot kernels sold as food and/or used as an ingredient in other foods. Apricot kernels that do not meet Health Canada’s ML will not be allowed to be sold in Canada.

We are working hard to source organic bitter apricot kernels that meet this new very strict 20 ppm maximum level. As soon as we do, rest assured they will be back in stock.


Our organic bitter apricot kernels are similar in appearance to a small almond. Fresh apricot kernels are white. The skin becomes light brown when dried out.

Bitter apricot seeds, also referred to as apricot kernels, are the most potent source of B17 (amygdalin). In each apricot seed, there are on average 20mg of B17.

Our apricot kernels are jam-packed with nutrients. We encourage you to continue to do more research and figure out whether adding apricot seeds or B17 to your dietary routine is best for you.

General Storage Tips:

• Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
• Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
• Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
• Mason jars make great storage containers.
• Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
