Almonds are a top source of the cancer-fighting antioxidant vitamin E, and they are also a good source of manganese, folate, copper, B2, phosphorus, biotin, magnesium, and molybdenum. Apricot kernels provide amygdalin and pangamic acid, which studies show help prevent cancer and heart disease.
Almonds’ and apricot kernels’ high monounsaturated fat content not only helps absorb all 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.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our nuts. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful nut. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
We stone-grind our almonds and 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.
