Benefits of Apricot Kernels

Apricot kernels are the seeds found inside the apricot fruit. They are often consumed as a snack or used as an ingredient in various dishes. Here are some potential health benefits of apricot kernels:

  1. Rich in Nutrients: Apricot kernels are a good source of nutrients like healthy fats, fiber, protein, vitamin E, and minerals such as magnesium, iron, and potassium.

  2. May Have Antioxidant Properties: Apricot kernels contain antioxidants, which may help protect cells from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.

  3. May Support Heart Health: Some studies suggest that the healthy fats found in apricot kernels may help reduce LDL cholesterol levels, a risk factor for heart disease.

  4. May Have Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Certain compounds found in apricot kernels have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties that may benefit conditions such as arthritis.

  5. May Have Anti-Cancer Properties: Some studies suggest that compounds in apricot kernels may have anti-cancer properties. However, more research is needed to confirm this.

It is important to note that apricot kernels contain a compound called amygdalin, which can break down into cyanide in the body. Consuming high amounts of apricot kernels may lead to cyanide poisoning, which can be dangerous. Therefore, it is important to consume them in moderation and to avoid consuming them in large amounts or as a sole source of nutrition.

They also contain vitamin B17 and have been used in medicine since ancient times.

Apricot kernels have a rich amaretto flavor.
