So, what is almendras amargas?

Almendras amargas, also known as bitter almonds, are a type of almond that contains amygdalin, a compound that can break down into cyanide when consumed. Despite their name, they are actually sweet to the taste but can cause toxicity if ingested in large quantities. Bitter almonds are often used for their unique flavor in baking and cooking, particularly in French and Italian cuisine. They are also used in the production of almond oil and cosmetics. However, due to their potential toxicity, bitter almonds are regulated in some countries and can only be sold in limited quantities or under certain conditions.
