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 PickOur 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 NutritionConsidering 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.

“I am absolutely stunned at how quick I received my order. I ordered 10 pounds of poppy seeds and they arrived in less than 24 hours! Not even a full day! This is absolutely the fastest I have ever received anything bought online. Not to mention the seeds are delicious and cheap and come so nicely packaged. I will never buy my baking products from another company again. And guarantee you wont ether.”

“Wow! What service! I really appreciate your e-mail letting me know how many cups in a pound. I haven't made my favorite poppy seed cake in years because the tiny bottles at the grocery store are so expensive. I need about 2 cups per cake so now we will be able to enjoy it again. It's an old family favorite and when I told my cousin about your poppy seed she said, "Get some for me too." Your service was excellent and the order arrived in no time at all. Thank you so much.

“just wanted to THANK YOU for ending my seemingly never-ending search for poppyseed in my local supermarkets. i have several recipes which call for poppyseed, and i can never find it when i need it. i ordered two pounds from you and just got it today. what a great price, and what a pleasure to know that i won't be driving all over town looking for those tiny little (expensive)jars of poppyseed. THANKS!!”

“Poppy seeds arrived as promised, thanks for a job well done.”
Cindy, Stillwater, OK July 31, 2009
“Almond butter was great. And also I ordered a pound of poppy seeds, which is amazing when you think about the fact that at supermarkets you can only buy it in a tiny shaker. How am I supposed to bake with that!? Haha, my husband and I calculated we would have to spend at least 50 dollars for the recipe I'm using! Thank you!!!”

“Package arrive early enough to start on my poppy seed rolls. Waiting on the dough to rise!!”
Polly, Houston, TX June 28, 2009
“Your poppy seeds arrived today. They look and taste marvelous! Am I surprised? You bet!! Pleasantly so! In the stores, poppy seeds run about $3 an ounce. Your poppy seeds come out to about 32 cents an ounce!! I make between 6 and 9 loaves of lemon poppy seed bread every 10 days for a local homeless shelter. You have helped both me and the shelter by deferring this (potentially) expensive ingredient. I will definitely be buying more from you Nuts. Thanks for a great product, for not being greedy and for your MOST EXCELLENT customer service. ”

“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.”
