Description: Bitter apricot kernels are often used in the manufacture of cosmetic products. Wild apricots and apricots, which have a lot of hydrocyanic acid, are used for the bitter apricot kernels. The bitter taste indicates that the seeds contain amygdalin. Amygdalin can cause symptoms of poisoning. Raw and unprocessed bitter apricot kernels are unfit for human consumption. 1
Origin: We source our bitter organic apricot kernels exclusively from Uzbekistan. Only from there can we be sure that the quality meets our high standards. The apricots ripen on trees around Samarkand. The area is largely certified organic and is managed by the farmers who live there. The farmers in this region have been working according to organic cultivation criteria for many years and are very proud of their contribution to the preservation of nature.
Drying: After careful harvesting, the apricots are washed, halved and stoned. The shell of the kernel is cracked open and the actual apricot kernel is gently dried with the help of the sun. The drying process used is a very environmentally friendly solar drying method that is extremely gentle on the product.
Purity: Arriving in Austria, the apricot kernels are pressure treated and laser cleaned. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests. During the subsequent multiple cleaning in the laser cleaning system, the apricot kernels are checked individually to rule out any foreign material.
