Apricot Kernels

Apricot kernels look like small almonds. Most have a somewhat bitter flavor, although, there are also some with a sweeter taste. Some people eat them in small quantity for their nutritional properties. They contain laetrile (also known as B-17) which may be healthy to consume. It is important not to eat to many apricot kernels as they contain substances that may not be safe if one were to consume more than a few. Some people do not believe apricot kernels should be eaten at all.
