What’s in the jar? 100% raw, organic sweet apricot kernels, stone-ground to creamy perfection. Enjoy the rich, sweet amaretto flavor of our Apricot Kernel Butter drizzled on fruit or ice cream, folded into smoothies or sandwiches, in raw or baked treats, or in your favorite recipe!
Apricot kernels don’t just taste good, they contain amygdalin and pangamic acid, which studies show help prevent heart disease and cancer! Their high monounsaturated fat content not only helps absorb these nutrients, it lowers cholesterol, reduces risk of heart disease, and regulates blood sugar spikes. Plus, plenty of protein and fiber gives you long-term energy without a crash.
We stone-grind our sweet apricot kernels slowly at low temperatures for the smoothest, most nutritious nut butter possible-- after all, that’s how nut butter was first made. Read more about the benefits of stone-grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! Apricot kernels come in sweet and bitter varieties. Since the bitter variety can contain more amygdalin than is healthy, Blue Mountain Organics offers only sweet apricot kernels.
