So, what is apricot kernels?

Apricot kernels are the edible seeds found inside the pit of apricots. These small, oval-shaped kernels have a bittersweet taste and are used in various culinary and medicinal applications. Rich in protein, healthy fats, and fiber, apricot kernels are a nutritious addition to your diet. They are also a natural source of vitamin B17, which has been associated with potential anti-cancer benefits. However, it's important to consume apricot kernels in moderation as they contain small amounts of cyanide, which can be toxic if consumed in large quantities.
