Amygdalin, also known as vitamin B17, can naturally be found in apricot seeds, bitter almonds, and other nuts though at very minimal concentrations. A single seed can contain about 5-10 mg of amygdalin depending on the type of seed. This is a very low concentration of amygdalin and is not enough for the human body to utilize this vitamin.
Due to these very low concentrations, methods have been developed to extract this vitamin and create it into highly concentrated supplements that humans can take to benefit from their natural properties. Consuming apricot seeds or bitter almonds by themselves do not provide the body the necessary dose of amygdalin to receive the benefits of this vitamin, therefore an extraction process is necessary.
This process begins with the collection of apricot seeds or bitter almonds. These seeds are dried for a long period of time and baked at the lowest temperature possible to ensure that the outer shells of these seeds crack and are easier to remove.
The rest of the seed is pulverized and turned into a powder. This powder by itself is not the amygdalin concentrate, it is still simply the pulverized seed. This pulverized seed has a beige or brown color, which is completely different from the clear, white color of the amygdalin extract powder. This is an easy test to determine if you are consuming true amygdalin extract or simply pulverized apricot seed.
