Organic Wild Apricot Kernels (Sweet)
Apricot kernels (also known as apricot seeds) are the small seeds found inside the pit of an apricot. They resemble almonds and have a mild and slightly sweet taste. These organic raw sweet apricot kernels are harvested apricots grown without pesticides or chemicals.
These are not the bitter apricot kernels, although each batch may contain a few bitter-tasting kernels. Sweet apricot kernels contain significantly lower levels of amygdalin than bitter apricot kernels.
Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes organic sweet apricot kernels to add to trail mix, ground up to add to oatmeal or quick bread. They add a boost of B-vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin A.
I enjoy these a lot - they are one of my go-to snack nuts. Yum!Heidi, North Charleston, SC
These are the sweet apricot kernels and, therefore, not dangerous. That being said, I find that there's a bit of a bitter aftertaste that can be disconcerting if you're not ready for it. I like them well enough, but don't feel that they could ever replace my beloved almonds. :)Lorna, Jamaica, NY
