Poppy seeds are a very popular tiny seed often used as a decoration or ingredients in baking. Poppy seeds are often found in muffins or on breads, cakes and other delcious baked goods.
These poppy seeds are tiny blue-grey coloured seeds derived from the dried pod of the poppy plant. Poppy seeds have a slightly nutty aroma and taste and are often dry roasted or soaked and ground prior to using. They can be sprinkled onto cakes, breads, biscuits and muffins for a delicious nutty flavour and texture. Soaked poppy seeds can also be combined with other spices and added to gravies and curries as a thickener.
Poppy seeds are thoroughly cleaned using multiple air aspirators, screens & magnets. Water is not used in the process. These seeds are raw and come from the Papaver Somniferum variety.
