Apricot kernels are more than just a tasty snack. Studies show that their amygdalin and pangamic acid content helps prevent heart disease and cancer! Their 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 apricot kernels. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful kernel. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
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 about the benefits of stone-grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! There are sweet and bitter varieties of apricot kernels. Blue Mountain Organics offers only sweet apricot kernels.
