Some people like the bitter amaretto like flavour when eaten alone. For a sweeter approach, pop a kernel into a dried apricot. Can be added to trail mix or blended in a smoothie. Try grinding and sprinkling on cereals, fruit, yogurt or salads.
Apricot Kernels are also popular because they contain fibre healthy fats and vitamins.
Amygdalin, or vitamin B17, is found in high concentrations in Apricot Kernels. The Food Standards Agency posted a health alert in 2006 claiming that consuming 20-30 kernels in a short period of time could result in cyanide poisoning. However, cases of cyanide toxicity are rare. Due to this matter we recommend that you consume no more than 2 kernels per day.
