[tab name="Law change"]
We're sorry to inform you that the raw bitter apricot kernel is under attack and is going to be banned very soon as a food product for human consumption due to new EU and UK legislation because of the high amounts of vitamin B17 contained per kg of seeds. The new restriction requirements states we must prove our kernels are under the following very low amount of up to 20mg of B17 per kg of kernels to be classed as a human food product.
This does not effect fresh apricots you can buy from shops, blanched kernels or flavouring's such as marzipan or the drink amaretto where the B17 content has been diminished due to the high temperatures needed for processing these products.
This new upcoming Law (whether we remain in the EU or not) makes our Raw Bitter Kernel capsules (and other suppliers/stockists in the EU) illegal for human food consumption due to its high amount of Hydrocyanic acid, amygdalin, prussic acid or more commonly known as Vitamin B17. To stay compliant with the new legislation we can only serve our popular Organic bitter apricot kernels capsules as a pet food supplement only as many of you have used our bitter apricot seed capsules for this purpose in the past by either breaking the capsule in half to give the correct dosage or by using pill pockets especially designed for administering supplements and medicines for your pets.
What about the sweet kernel?
The more sweeter variety of apricot seed also contains Vitamin B17 in lower amounts then its bitter relative. UnFortunately analysis shows that the sweet kernel is above this new legal limit which was found to contain over 10mg per 1kg so is also affected by this human consumption restriction and will not be available any longer even though they have been enjoyed as a food for hundreds of years.

"Bitter apricot kernels Thank you very much for my second order of the above goods. Delivery excellent and I’m very pleased with the service."
"Excellent product Quick delivery, well packaged, good price. Those of us who need bitter apricot kernels on a daily basis rely on companies supplying us with the "real thing". This is the "real thing" and Wellgood is the best company I have dealt with (this was my second order) since I started using the kernels regularly (and successfully) five years ago"
"Brilliant fab excellent I have suffered with Arthritis and Fybromyagia for years and tried many things nothing has helped. I noticed a difference within a month to joint pain and wellbeing. I recently went away for the weekend and forgot to take it with me. I noticed a difference immediately with joint pain returning and tiredness. As soon as i started taking again pain
gone and energy and positivity returned. I am a sceptical person and never expected this to work. But i am the proof it does. Need to get some more Astaxanthin asap"
