The poppy seed is basically the oilseed that is derived from the poppy plant. With a nutty flavor and crisp texture, these seeds are often used when baking pastries and breads. Outside the kitchen, these seeds are used in Ayurvedic medicine as moisturizers for the skin and to treat inflammations and eczemas.
These seeds are also rich in several minerals and nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron, potassium, fiber and phosphorus. The benefits of a regular consumption of poppy seeds include limiting the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and building of strong bones. Consuming poppy seeds also favours an effective digestion and strengthens the immune system. A regular intake of poppy seeds in the diet can also aid to protect the organism against cancer.
Even though there are poppy seeds for sale in grocery store, they only come in jars of about 1 or 2.5 ounces. This is not sufficient for a regular consumption and tend to be expensive considering the price weight ratio. Some poppy seeds suppliers offer the possibility of bulk buying. These can be found in specialized markets and spice stores. Cultural markets such as Indian and European ones tend to sell poppy seeds in bulk as it is a common ingredient in their cuisines.
If you cannot find such markets in your locality, you can opt to purchase your poppy seeds online. Online stores often offer a good value on bulk purchases.
