Apricot kernels are a good source of minerals and vitamins, especially B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. 1
They are therefore ideal for a balanced, healthy diet.
The apricot kernels resemble almonds in appearance, colour, shape and consistency, but are crunchier and fruitier 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 meets our high standards.
The apricots ripen on trees around Samarkand. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The approximately 1000 farmers who farm the area belong to one of three large Fairtrade groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkestan Gulba oder Turob Baba. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
After careful harvesting, the apricots are washed, halved and stoned. The shell of the pit is cracked open and the actual apricot pit is then placed in water to blanch the pits. 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.
Arriving in Austria, the apricot kernels are pressure treated. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
