Description: Our delicious organic apricot kernels are characterized by a very fruity, nutty and pleasantly salty character. They are very popular as an alternative to roasted / salted almonds and can of course be enjoyed raw. The apricot kernels are similar in appearance, color, shape and consistency to the almonds, but are crunchier and more aromatic because they were surrounded by a fruit. Only very sweet apricots are used for our sweet apricot kernels, as this guarantees that the amygdalin content is low and the kernels can be eaten without hesitation.1 Roasting the apricot kernels ensures that the amyglade content is harmless. Apricot kernels are a good source of minerals and vitamins, especially B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus and iron are in them.2 They are therefore ideally suited for a balanced, healthy diet.
Origin: We source our organic Fairtrade apricot kernels exclusively from Uzbekistan. Only from there can we be sure that the quality will meet our high standards. The apricots ripen on trees around Samarkand. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The 1,000 or so farmers who work the area belong to one of three large Fairtrade groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba or Turob Bobo. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective. The apricot kernel is the seed of the apricot that lies within the hard shell. For the production of 100 g organic apricot kernels you need around 7 kg of fresh organic apricots, i.e. a ratio of 1:70!
Drying: After the careful harvest, the apricots are washed, halved and pitted. The peel 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. Once in Austria, the apricot kernels are lightly salted, gently roasted and immediately packed by us. For an even better quality, we have chosen a special packaging that includes the taste and aroma even better.
Purity: Once in Austria, the apricot kernels are pressure treated and laser cleaned. With pressure removal, 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 in order to rule out any foreign contamination.
