APRICOT KERNELS - SHELLED
What is it?
The apricot kernel (Prunus armeniaca) is the nut inside the apricot pip. It is a source of iron, potassium and phosphorus, and one of the best sources of vitamin B17 (also known as amygdalin and found in the seeds of fruits such as peaches, plums and apples). Also called "apricot almonds" or "bitter almonds", apricot kernels originated in Armenia and are also native to Northern China, the Himalayan region and parts of Asia.
What can I do with it?
Apricot kernels have a powerful almond aroma and can be used in limited quantities in recipes to make marzipane, nut balls, amaretto cookies and other cakes and in apricot jam.
What can it do for me?
We urge you to do some of your own research on the potential toxicity of apricot kernels. There is a substantial body of conflicting research that has arisen with the rise in belief of apricot kernels potentially being a natural cancer cure due to the B17 they contain and there are many food safety bodies that warn that the kernels could be deadly to a toddler at the very least and very toxic to an adult. At present there are not any trials that have been conducted to verify the claims one way or another.
Amygdalin/Laetrile/ B17is credited with cancer-fighting properties. As you know, your body in it's evolutionary processes, makes both healthy and unhealthy cells all the time. The trick really is to keep an internal clean and have lifestyle and dietary protocols to eliminate the bad ones without harming the good ones. Dosage is specific: 8 kernels a day. Our customers also sometimes take twice that dosage, but 50 a day would be considered toxic because of the small amount of cyanide they contain. Apricot kernels are bitter and thus an acquired taste, but they do grow on you.
How do I store it?
Keep In an airtight container in the fridge. Keep it in the freezer for longer shelf life.
