and processors of Australian-grown apricot kernels exclusively.
Note: We're very busy at the moment and there
may be short delays. Though we endeavour to send
orders out the day they're received, they may
go out a day later.
being one of the largest producers of apricots in the world,
most of the apricot kernels now available in Australia are
imported. For an Australian supplier, there is only one
reason to import apricot kernels from overseas - they're
very cheap - however, they're also mass-produced and low
grade. Relative to Australian apricot kernels, they are
very low quality and subject to all AQIS quarantine measures.
Though the cost and labour benefits are appealing, we will
not sell foreign apricot kernels. This is a promise. Pay
attention to the origin of your apricot kernels. It is against
Australian law not to advise the country of origin for one's
product. If you're purchasing apricot kernels through another
source, look for a country of origin. If you can't find
one, chances are good they're hoping you'll assume the product
product is the most sought after apricot kernel in Australia.
It's been the product of choice for those knowledgeable
about apricot kernels for 10 years. Though we endeavour
to send all orders out the day they're received, your purchase
is fulfilled with apricot kernels we've hand-sorted the
same day. There may be occasions we simply haven't been
able to keep up with orders. In this scenario, your order
will be posted the day following purchase. This should still
get your kernels to you within 3 days of purchasing.
our product is superior on every level, our prices will
remain competitive and continue to represent unmatched value.
If you've found apricot kernels at a lower price, they will
be an inferior product of India, Turkey, Pakistan or China.
It is entirely unnecessary to settle for these low quality
imports for the sake of cost. We're committed to not only
offering the highest quality product in Australia, but the
lowest priced as well.

How do we differ from these others? We work hard. We do
our own labour and our kernels are exclusively Australian.
We're a small-scale, family operation dedicated to the quality
of our product and our service. We
process our apricot kernels entirely chemical-free. We don't
even fumigate, so they remain free of chemical residues.
They are raw, living and 100% natural, which makes them
suited to sprouting and propagation. This is only possible
with fresh, living seed. If you choose to purchase our product,
you're buying directly from the source. Your order is freshly
cracked this week, hand-sorted to the highest quality and
packed fresh daily.
Note: Amygdalin, often referred to as "B17"
or "vitamin B17", is present in different concentrations
amongst different apricot kernels. An apricot kernel of
one variety does not equal an apricot kernel of another.
The apricot kernels sold in Australia have very different
levels of amygdalin. Some have relatively low levels, where
ours are very concentrated. Freshness plays a significant
role, as does variety and origin. A number of these kernels
are imported from other countries, such as India, Turkey,
Pakistan and China. Our apricot kernels are Australian-grown
with a new batch cracked weekly. As a result, our product
is very fresh and contains a high concentration of amygdalin.
This is significant and should be taken into consideration.
is our responsibility to make you aware that FSANZ and the
DOH advise against the consumption of raw, bitter
apricot kernels from any source. If you're choosing to use
them in this way, please bear in mind that not all apricot
kernels are equal. Following general consumption advice
may result in very different experiences.
retailers are marketing apricot kernels as a snack food.
We strongly advise against treating them as such. Though
the other apricot kernels contain relatively little amygdalin,
treating them as a snack is likely to result in unpleasant
