Poppy seeds

Poppy seeds are kidney-shaped seeds come from the poppy plant (Papaver somniferum)but they don’t have the same opiate properties as the plant they come from,

Poppy seeds are tiny; depending on where they’re cultivated, they can vary in color, although they’re usually black.


Poppy seeds can be eaten whole, ground up and added to a meal, or pressed for poppy seed oil.
Poppy seeds are a source of fiber, which helps to keep you feeling full for longer periods of time. They also contain magnesium, which helps with bone health and blood clotting, and calcium, which also plays a role in bone health.

They are rich in certain vitamins, and minerals. They also contain macronutrients (fats, proteins, and carbs).

Poppy seeds can also be pressed to make poppy seed oil, which has omega-6 and omega-9 fats, which have been found to improve overall health and lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Poppy seeds and poppy seed oil also contain polyphenols, an antioxidant associated with a reduced risk of heart disease.
Poppy seed oil contains oleic acid, which may help to heal wounds on the skin. According to the Journal of Drug Delivery and Therapeutics, poppy seeds and poppy seed oil have historically been used to treat headaches, coughs, asthma, and even insomnia. Poppy plants contain the opium alkaloids morphine, codeine, and thebaine (among other compounds), which are known for their pain-relieving and sleep-inducing abilities. Poppy seeds don’t naturally contain these opioid compounds but they can become contaminated during processing and remain that way if unwashed.
