There is great potential in stone fruit kernels, whether from apricots, peaches, plums or cherries. They contain seeds which contain many proteins and healthy oils. This is why the seeds are ideal for the production of sustainable and high-quality edible oils, snack and natural cosmetics.
We only use carefully selected raw materials from European fruit growers and processing companies. With our energy-autonomous production, we can create regional products for the first time and thus provide meaningful added value that helps everyone along the value chain:
Relief and additional source of income for farmers and processing companies
Conservation of resources through cascading plant use in the sense of circular economy
High quality, sustainable and novel superfood for consumers
In terms of appearance and taste, apricot seeds are very similar to almonds. The fruity note and special texture of the seed allows a particularly full mouthfeel with a pleasant and marzipan-like aftertaste. Due to the very high content of unsaturated fatty acids, proteins and minerals, the kernel can be regarded as of very high nutritional quality. Also the high vitamin E content (70mg/kg) is remarkable.
