- A Spice for Life
- Fresh, High Quality, California-Grown Bitter Apricot Kernels
- All Natural
- No Additives
- No Preservatives
- Approximately 750 Kernels
Our kernels are fresh, high quality, California grown apricot kernels which have not been steamed or cooked and, thus, retain their full complement of natural nutrients. Because of their unusual flavor, many of our customers consider them to be a spice. As with most spices, however, the flavor may not be pleasing when consumed alone or in large quantities. Ground up, they are especially tasty on hot vegetable dishes, fruit, baked potatoes, and soup. They are also great when mixed into cold cereal or yogurt!
B17 occurs in abundance in nature and is bitter to the taste. In man's attempt to improve taste for its own pleasure, he has eliminated bitter substances like B17 by selection and cross-breeding. As a general rule many of the foods that have been domesticated still contain vitamin B17 in that part not eaten by modern man, such as the seed in apricots.
If you haven't consumed apricot kernels before you should introduce them into your system gradually. As a general rule one kernel per hour for the first few days is adequate for the average person.
