Important Information About Apricot Seeds
Are You Throwing Away The Healthiest Part Of The Fruit?
Most of us enjoy the outer sweet taste of many fruits like apricots, peaches, and cherries. But did you know that inside these fruits is what many cultures believe to be the healthiest part of the fruit? Hidden inside the strong armored pit is a small seed that contains a highly nutritious substance called Amygdalin, most commonly known as B17.
Many of our customers enjoy our bitter, raw California-grown apricot seeds ground up and added to their favorite hot beverages, blended drinks, and foods. In fact, we sell seed grinders for that purpose. We are always looking to make things more convenient to get B17 back into your body and have come up with another way for you to do that – ground seed meal.

Bitter Raw Apricot Seeds
What is B17 (Amygdalin)?
Amygdalin, often referred to as B17, is a naturally occurring molecule found in over 1,200 different foods including fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds. B17 is found in concentrated amounts in the seeds of apricots, plums, cherries, oranges, nectarines, apples, peaches, and many other fruits. Our natural B17 supplement is extracted from bitter raw apricot seeds.
B17 Is Found in Hundreds of Foods!
In addition to apricot seeds, B17 is found in wild blackberries, wild crabapples, elderberries, apple seeds, cherry seeds, nectarine seeds, peach seeds, pear seeds, plum seeds, prune seeds, fava, bamboo, alfalfa, eucalyptus and cassava, 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 Do I Need It?
B17 is primarily used by people to help support a healthy immune system. Many people believe that B17 is an essential nutrient and may offer a variety of benefits to our health. We encourage everyone to do their own research and decide on their own how it may help them.
Why The Apricot Seed?
You can find moderate amounts of B17 in the seeds of such fruits as apples, peaches, nectarines, plums, and cherries. But, of all the foods containing B17, the apricot seed has been found to have one of the highest levels. Our seeds also contain Pangamic Acid (B15) as well as naturally occurring enzymes. These three items work together synergistically to maximize the benefits of B17 to your health.
Bitter Is Better, No Matter What Your Taste Buds Say!
The bitterness in the apricot seed indicates the amount of B17 content it contains. Sweet seeds contain little to no B17 whereas bitter seeds contain the most. We recommend grinding the seeds to mix into smoothies, shakes, oatmeal, soups, salads and more.
Ways to Enjoy the Apricot Seed
Some people like the bitter, amaretto like flavor when eaten alone, while others do not. Popular ways to enjoy apricot seeds 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. For those that prefer a sweeter option see our website for our Wholefood Snack Bars, ApriSweet Dark Chocolate, and SuperFood Mix.
What is the Shelf Life of Apricot Seeds?
We guarantee our seeds for at least 2 years from the date of packaging.
