Sometimes known as apricot seeds, apricot pips or raw apricot seeds, apricot kernels are packed full of nutrients including laetrile B17. They are both tasty and healthy, with a flavour similar to almonds. All types of apricot kernals can be eaten either ground up, added to drinks or cereals, or simply chewed as a nutritious snack.
We sell bitter and sweet apricot kernels with both types available in organic and non-organic. We also sell raw apricot kernel butter, along with a wide variety of different raw nut and seed butters.
Bitter apricot kernals are one of the world's richest natural sources of amygdalin (B17), a nutrient which which has been hyped as a prevention or cure for cancer (but as it stands they have not been recognised by any medical authority). As they are so rich in B17 apricot kernels are a significant natural immune system booster.
Sweet apricot kernels contain B17 too, but in less quantities. This means they taste much sweeter and more like almonds.
Apricot kernel oil and apricot carrier oil is a great alternative to using other cheaper carrier oils in aromatherapy.
Out of the variety of places which produce dried apricot seeds, Hunza apricot kernels are regarded as some of the best. Our apricot kernels are always of optimum standard and quality.
