Apricot kernels are known as the seeds found inside the stone of every apricot. When fresh they are white in color and once dried have light brown skin around the outside. They can be confused with a small almond, as they look quite similar, however, they are slightly smaller than the common almond and a little flatter in appearance.
There are two main varieties of the apricot kernel; the sweet apricot kernel and the bitter apricot kernel. The bitter apricot has as its name suggests, a very off-putting bitter flavor and has long been claimed to be beneficial as a natural treatment in curing cancer. It is claimed they contain high levels of B17, otherwise known as amygdalin. Amygdalin breaks down to hydrogen cyanide and in high enough doses can cause acute toxicity!

Pistachio nuts are not only delicious, but also nutritionally wholesome. They have high amounts of proteins, minerals and fat, predominantly monounsaturated, like that found in olive oil. They are also an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins E and B6, and iron, calcium, manganese and potassium, among others. Pistachio nuts help reduce bad cholesterol, increase hemoglobin levels and prevent heart problems.
Cashews have a smaller fat content than most nuts, with roughly 75% consisting of unsaturated fatty acids. About 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid content is oleic acid, which is the same monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Various studies have shown that oleic acid promotes cardiovascular health, even with diabetics. Studies show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a form in which fats are carried in the blood.
