    Apricot Power - Apricot Kernels Raw - 8 oz.

    Apricot Power Raw Apricot Kernels are all natural and unsalted, with no additives and no preservatives. Apricots Power 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 Apricot Power's 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!

    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.

    B17 occurs in abundance in nature and is bitter to the taste. In man's attempt to improve taste for his 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 seeds in apricots.

    B17 Found in Hundreds of Foods!
    In addition to apricot seeds, B17 is found in wild blackberries, wild cranberries, elderberries, apply seeds, cherry seeds, nectarine seeds, peach seeds, pear seeds, plum seeds, prune seeds, fava, bamboo, alfalfa, eucalyptus and cassava. Other foods that contain lesser amounts of B17 are boysenberries, huckleberries, raspberries, strawberries, squash seeds, black beans, black eyed peas, lentils, lima beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, cashews, macadamia nuts, spinach, watercress, sweet potatoes and yams.

    Why the Apricot Kernel?
    Of all the foods containing B17, the apricot kernel has been found to have one of the highest levels, in addition to containing B15 and enzymes.

    Ways to Enjoy the Apricot Kernel
    Some people like the bitter, amaretto like flavor when eaten alone, while others do not. Popular ways to enjoy apricot kernels include: dipped in honey; inside a dried apricot; ground and sprinkled on a sandwich or salad; in a blended drink or added to trail mix.

    What is the Shelf Life of Kernels?
    The shelf life of apricot kernels at room temperature is four moths but if kept under refrigeration it is about a year.

    More Ways to Enjoy Apricot Kernels
    Find a variety of recipes like chocolate dipped cookies sprinkled with kernel pieces, marzipan, fruit smoothies, grilled PB&J and many more on Apricot Power's website.

    B17/Amygdalin in Concentrated Form
    Many of Apricot Power's customers request a higher dose of B17, for those they suggest their concentrated form in tablets or capsules in 100 mg or 500 mg.

    What is B17?
    Vitamin B17 was the name given to the purified form of Amygdalin by a biochemist named Ernst T Krebs in 1952. It is a non-toxic natural product found in over 1,000 foods. Today Amygdalin is extracted from apricot seeds/kernels.

    Why is B17 Important?
    Apricot Power believes that a balanced diet is essential to a healthy life. Few of us consume enough vitamins and minerals from the foods we eat. Vitamin supplements become necessary for optimal body function. B17 is just one of the many vitamins the body needs.

    Are There Side Effects?
    Some people experience subtle side effects when first consuming apricot kernels, due in part because most people don't regularly eat foods rich in B17. Side effects (headache or dizziness) that may occur are temporary and act as a signal that you're consuming too much B17 at one time. Monitor your body as you would when taking any food supplement.

    Good Cyanide vs. Secret Agent Cyanide
    Secret agent cyanide is different from the cyanide found in the food we eat. B17 does contain the cyanide radical (CN-) and so does vitamin B12, garbanzo beans and strawberries along with a host of other foods we consume.

      I recommend this product!
      Very bitter, but on the other hand they are full of nutrients that you really can't get in other foods. I can only eat three or four, and then I break them up into little pieces and mix with other fruits and nuts.

      The back of the package has a note about this product being "toxic" and there is a warning or recommendation that no more than 3 kernels be consumed within an hour's time and no more than 10 or 15 (I don't recall as I discarded the bag) for the entire day. This is a bit scary to me--I don't want to forget about this and ingest too many, or have other family members do the same. I would not have bought this had I known about this warning.
