    Eating Apple Seeds - Good or Bad?

    Shop Now
    Lately I've been consuming the entire apple whenever I eat one. Usually twice a day. Including the core and seeds.

    My thinking was that Grok wouldn't let anything go to waste so I eat it all down. Plus, I actually think they taste pretty good.

    I did a search to find out some info on eating apple seeds. I found some conflicting ideas. Some people talk about additional nutrients inside the seeds. Others about enzyme blockers and lectins. There's even talk about cyanide poisoning!

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    You should poop outside and see if a tree grows.

    Someone can probably answer this a little better, but i might avoid eating two apples a day. That is a lot of sugar.

    I have heard that the seeds are poisonous in large quantities, but I don't know how large is large.

    Don't worry too much about the seeds, you'd need to eat just the seeds of over 20 apples at once to have anything particularly negative happen.

    I always eat the whole apple, core and all. Same for pears, and all fruits and vegetables I can actually.

    What about kiwi skin?. My kids love eating the whole fruit with the fuzzy skin. This is probably okay, right? They also eat apple cores and they're just fine.

    Yup, kiwi skins are ok. I eat them too, along with pear cores. Apples, not so much. Too tough for my liking.

    Apple seeds do have trace elements of cyanide.
