Avocado seeds are filled with a very low quantity of persin, which is a fungicidal toxin. Avocado pits have been found to be edible until they are taken in a massive quantity. Most people use the seeds in the powdered form, which they use in smoothies. The seeds are filled with fiber and antioxidants that raise their nutritional benefits.

There is some amount of persin but its effects are very minimal. No one has ever faced any such problem due to avocado seeds
