Cyanide in apple seeds

I have been told that apple seed contain small amounts of the chemical Cyanide and that I should not put these seeds in my Smoothie. What about the other seeds and nuts?

Dear Cautious, you are correct. Apple seeds can contain traces of Cyanide and you should remove all seeds from apples before using them in your Smoothie. I am not aware of Cyanide in any of the other commonly used seeds but I would be happy to get more information and suggestions from our website users.
