Apricot kernels pose a risk of cyanide poisoning
Eating more than three small, raw apricot kernels, or less than half a large kernel, in a single serving can cause safe limits to be exceeded. In the case of small children, there is a risk that the limit value will be exceeded if only a small apricot kernel is consumed.
Apricot kernels contain a naturally occurring substance called amygdalin, which turns into cyanide (hydrogen cyanide) after consumption. Cyanide poisoning can cause nausea, fever, headache, insomnia, thirst, sluggishness, nervousness, various joint and muscle pains and a drop in blood pressure. In extreme cases, it can lead to death.
Studies have shown that as little as 0.5 to 3.5 milligrams (mg) of cyanide per kilogram of body weight can be fatal. The EFSA panel for contaminants in the food chain set the safe limit value for a single exposure (the so-called acute reference dose - “ARfD”) at 20 micrograms (µg) per kilogram of body weight. This is 25 times below the lowest reported lethal dose.
Based on these limit values and the amygdalin concentrations typically found in raw apricot kernels, EFSA experts estimate that consuming less than half of a large kernel would already lead to the ARfD for adults being exceeded (370 mg) can. For small children this amount would be 60 mg
