Organic Bitter Apricot Kernels
Warning: Amygdalin is a naturally occurring substance found in apricot kernels. When amygdalin is ingested, it converts to cyanide in their body. Cyanide is a fast-acting, potentially deadly chemical. You should not eat more than 37g/day, which is the equivalent of 1-2 small kernels. Children should not eat apricot kernels.
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 Power apricot seed, there are on average 20mg of B17. Our bodies cannot naturally produce Vitamin B17; therefore, in order to enjoy its benefits, we must consume it by eating specific foods or ingesting it in supplement form.
Our apricot kernels are jam-packed with beneficial nutrients that almost every person can reap rewards from. 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.
