Using Your Poppy Seeds

These blue, beautiful poppy seeds are bursting with bold, nutty flavor and have dozens of popular applications. Poppy seeds add both flavor and texture to breads, cookies, muffins, cakes and other baked goods, and are sometimes added to hamburger and hot dog buns to give them a little crunch. Try adding a few pinches to other favorites like pancake batter or salad dressing.

You can buy poppyseeds for uses outside of the kitchen, too. Their pleasing color and shape make them a popular additive to homemade bars of soap, in which they serve as a mild exfoliant. In Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, these seeds are ground into a paste with fresh milk to create a revitalizing skin moisturizer.

Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes poppy seeds to add crunch to muffins, quick breads, rolls and bread, especially since each ounce of poppy seeds has 13% of the daily value for calcium.

Blue Poppy Seeds Used Worldwide

Recipes from numerous cuisines call for these seeds, including some of the most iconic dishes from countries around the world.

In Ukrainian cuisine, blue poppy seeds are a key ingredient in kutia, a sweet pudding and common first dish in traditional twelve-course Christmas Eve dinners. The seeds can be ground into a fine paste that is commonly used throughout Central and Eastern Europe. This paste is a filling in makowiec, a traditional Polish bread roll, and in hamantash, a traditional Jewish cookie served during Purim in some parts of Europe.

Even when you can't travel the globe, you can use our bulk poppy seeds to whip up a huge range of international treats in your own home.

Poppy Seed Nutrition

Considering all the delicious applications that these seeds have, it can be easy to forget that they're good for you, too. A single poppy seed serving delivers 13% of the daily recommended value of calcium, and boosts your daily intake of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and iron, as well. Added to your bird seed mix, these seeds are also good for our feathered friends. Pouring bulk poppy seeds into your feeders without other seed can even soothe digestive and gastrointestinal issues in many wild birds.

“Wow. Just.... WOW. Every consideration is taken, from bulk pricing and unparalleled quality to efficient, streamlined checkout and excellent shipping (FedEx takes the baton here and continues to impress me all the way to my doorstep), and every step is honestly impressive. I've tried each and every one of Nuts.com's competition, and I am far too spoiled by my experience here to EVER go back.

P.S. Thank you for everything else, the smallest touches can make all the difference, and I adore all the bags and boxes and tiny samples and just the general whimsy that radiates from everything you do. Don't. Ever. Change. ;-)”

“I was happily surprised today when an order for poppy seeds that I ordered for my mom last night about 6 PM arrived TODAY before 1 PM! All I can say is WOW! Thank you so very much. My mother has been searching all over as it seems poppy seeds are not too easy to find in stores. When I told her I found a web-site [yours!] that offered them for a scant $2.99 a POUND,she was floored! We will definitely be doing business with your company in the future. We are proud to join your nutty family! Thanks again!”

“So glad I found you on the web! I bought poppy seeds through you because I was not able to find any in my area for a reasonable price. I was so pleased with your personalized customer service. You all definitely know how to go the extra mile. From the emails appraising me of not only the delivery of my order but also when it was at my doorstep to the fun box you placed my order in. Keep doing what you're doing! ”

“Yup! This Nut Company is good and keeps its word. I wanted some poppy seeds in a hurry so that my Czech. sister-in-law could make me some kolaches for the holidays. It was so simple to order from the comfort of my couch in Colorado and have the poppy seeds sent to Wisconsin for the yummy baking to begin. I will be soon in "Heaven" tasting this delicious pastry and all available, thanks to a fast shipping Nuts.com. You kept your word and delivered expeditiously and it was fun, following the tracking of the poppy seeds from your New Jersey warehouse to the kitchen of my sister-in-law in Wisconsin. Thanks, so much! Jerome”
