Poppy seed has been cultivated for over 3,000 years. Blue poppy seeds have been used to enhance flavors of baked dishes for 400 years in central Europe, Iran and China.
The poppy plant is traditionally grown expressly for its calming properties.
Poppy seeds of culinary use have seeds that are very small in size, slate blue in color and are nut–like in flavor. Known for their nutty flavor, our blue poppy seeds also add a tinge of beautiful color to salads, baked desserts, bread or even as a decorative accent on ice cream!
Poppy Seed is used topically on breads and rolls, and added to vegetables and salad dressings. Turkish cuisine uses toasted Poppy Seeds, while Indian and Turkish spice blends rely on crushed Poppy Seeds for flavor and texture. The added bonus is that it adds rich iso–flavinoids to your food.
Poppy seeds contain very little opiate derivatives, largely due to the fact that the best quality seeds are obtained from dried, mature seed pods instead of unripe green pods. Be aware, however, that the rumor about poppy seeds is true—consuming a quantity of seeds shortly before taking a drug screening test can cause false-positive results.
