  B17 & Apricot kernels around the world..

 

Bitter apricot kernels have been part of ancient Chinese medicine for centuries they've also been used in specific Russian remedies since 1985, today a lot of us have heard of the Hunza people of Pakistan, they are an exceptionally healthy tribe, they eat and live completely organically and are renowned for being some of the healthiest peoples in the world. It is common to find vigorous, healthy people well into their 100s! One of the key factors is the mineral rich water they drink, but also their diet. One of their favourite foods and an important part of the Hunza people's diet are Apricots. They are eaten fresh in the summer and dried for the winter. The kernels are removed, ground and roasted, the oil is used for cooking, dressings and as a facial lotion. On average, The Hunzas eat between 50 to 75 milligrams of Vitamin B17 a day in the Western World, most wouldn't consume this amount in a year!

 

 

Vitamin B17, also refereed to as amygdalin, Laetrile, prussic acid, hydrocyanic acid, is naturally found in over a thousand different foods,

including the seeds of fruits such as apples, cherries,

peaches & plums, it is also found in lower amounts in sweet apricot kernels,

Bamboo shoots, alfalfa, spinach, wild blackberries,

elderberries and gooseberries,

the richest source is found within the bitter apricot kernel.

 

We have made it our top mission to source you the finest, freshest B17

rich apricot kernels in the world. Our apricot seeds are certified organic

so you can be assured you and your best friend is receiving

the full potential of natures goodness.

Why Choose us?

We're sorry to inform you that the raw bitter apricot kernel is under attack and is going to be banned very soon as a food product for human consumption due to new EU and UK legislation because of the high amounts of vitamin B17 contained per kg of seeds. The new restriction requirements states we must prove our kernels are under the following very low amount of up to 20mg of B17 per kg of kernels to be classed as a human food product.

 

This does not effect fresh apricots you can buy from shops, blanched kernels or flavouring's such as marzipan or the drink amaretto where the B17 content has been diminished due to the high temperatures needed for processing these products.

 

This new upcoming Law (not in place yet!) (whether we remain in the EU or not) will make our Raw Bitter Kernel's and capsules (and other suppliers/stockists in the EU) illegal for human food consumption due to its high amount of Hydrocyanic acid, amygdalin, prussic acid or more commonly known as Vitamin B17. To stay compliant with the new legislation we can only serve our popular Organic bitter apricot kernel as a cosmetic product which is widely used as a beauty exfoliation ingredient.
