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.

“Poppy seeds are priced very well, and make a good pie filling. Shipping is very fast as well. I used to get poppy seeds from a local health food store, but at $14.00 a pound only on special occasions. Now My wife and i can enjoy them year round without breaking the bank, thanks nutsonline!”

“I am a new Nuts.com customer. I found you folks online while looking for a place to buy large quantities of mini cinnamon chips at a reasonable price. I was impressed by the quality of the chips, as well as the ease of ordering and the next-day arrival. So, when I needed a lot of poppy seeds and to restock on cocoa powder, I ordered from you again. I will be shopping your site on a regular basis in the future. And we LOVE the boxes.”
