Benzaldehyde from Almonds


I am considering attempting a steam distillation on crushed almonds to aquire a crude oil in which I suspect may contain up to 30% benzaldehyde. Do I risk cyanide exposure in doing this? This feels like a stupid question but I figured better safe then sorry.

No, if you can eat it then you should not worry about it.

You will get zilch unless you have access to bitter almonds, in which case there is plenty of cyanide.
