What are Apricot Kernels? Simply put, they are the the edible seeds of apricots. They are a close relative to the almond, and they have a sweet, nutty flavor complimented with some nice amaretto notes. What's great is that they also have healthy plant fats, iron and protein. These raw, certified organic, delicious treats come from wild apricot trees that have never come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizer. The apricots are hand harvested and then the kernels are removed and dried over time in the sun. Sunfood's farmers pride themselves on cultivating high quality kernels while maintaining eco-friendly and sustainable agricultural practices. It's a win-win for all!
Enjoy out of the bag, in a smoothie or trail mix, dipped in honey, or ground and sprinkled on a salad.
About Sunfood, in their own words
Years ago, a group of health minded individuals noticed an alarming trend in their towns and communities. They saw friends and family eating and drinking dead, processed foods full of chemicals. They knew that this was the path to obesity and disease, ultimately leading to western medicine’s suppression of symptoms with drugs and scalpels. This is not true healing.
Sunfood was born from their desire to create an alternative path to health. We believe that the secrets to health, energy and long life are found in nature through diet and nutrition. Building upon the wisdom of traditional and modern natural healing methods from all over the world, we are here to share powerful information and superfoods that help people heal and rejuvenate themselves naturally.
It is our quest to find the most nutrient dense, raw, organic, Non-GMO superfoods on the planet. Our search to uncover ancient and modern healing knowledge lost to our society has taken us all over the world, from the tropical regions of South America to the high mountains of Tibet.
Our family-operated business is located in San Diego, where we prepare superfoods in our certified organic facility and package them for you with care. We are passionate about empowering our Sunfood family through education, from our superfood specialists on the phones, to our newsletters filled with the latest health information, to recipes made with love from our kitchen to yours.
