Apple seeds contain amygdalin which when broken down and metabolized forms hydrogen cyanide. The body can detoxify cyanide in small doses - the amount one might consume in an apple every now and then and unless the seeds are pulverized or masticated, the amygdalin they house remains safely contained within. However, the NutriBullet breaks the seeds down which releases the amygdalin and if consumed in large amounts and/or often, it may pose harm. Cherry, peach, and apricot pits also contain amygdalin.
