Apricot kernels are a good source of minerals and vitamins, especially B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. 1
They are therefore ideally suited for a balanced, healthy diet.
The apricot kernels are similar in appearance, color, shape and consistency to the almonds, but are crisper and fruity and aromatic because they are surrounded by a fruit.
The kernels can be used very well as an alternative to blanched almonds and they can of course be eaten raw.
Only very sweet apricots are used for the sweet apricot kernels, as this guarantees that the amygdalin content is low and the kernels can be eaten without hesitation.2
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 around 1000 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.
After the careful harvest, the apricots are washed, halved and pitted. The skin of the kernel is cracked open and the actual apricot kernel is then placed in water to blanch the kernels. Finally, the kernels are 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 pressure treated. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
