Apricot kernel is the soft part inside the seed of the apricot. The kernels have a bitterness to them which many say is a bit of an acquired taste. Europeans will often put a seed in their jam to enhance the flavour. Italians add crushed apricot kernels in Amaretti biscuits. Egyptians make a snack out of ground kernels called dokka.
Apricot kernels are loaded with healthy fats that help lower bad cholesterol. These help fight heart disease and improve mental health. These seeds contain other nutritious compounds such as vitamin A, magnesium, potassium and iron, as well as a compound called amygdalin, which is used to support a healthy immune system.
