Certified Organic Apricot Kernels
Apricot Kernels are simply the edible seeds of apricots. A close relative to the almond, they have a sweet, nutty flavor with a hint of amaretto. Apricot Kernels are one of the highest natural sources of a rare phytonutrient called amygdalin, also known as vitamin B17, an important nutrient which has largely disappeared from Western diets. A cholesterol-free food, Apricot Kernels also have healthy plant fats, protein and iron.
The Sunfood Difference™
Our raw, certified organic apricot kernels originate from wild apricot trees that have never come into contact with any sort of pesticide, herbicide or synthetic fertilizer. The apricots are harvested gently by hand, then the kernels are removed and slowly sun-dried. Our farmers pride themselves on cultivating the highest quality kernels possible while maintaining eco-friendly and sustainable agricultural practices.
It is best to start slowly with 6-10 apricot kernels a day. Enjoy out of the bag, in a smoothie or trail mix, dipped in honey, or ground and sprinkled on a salad.
