When you’re wondering about which spices you’re going to use in the kitchen, you might want to consider adding the Simply Organic Poppy Seed to the list. This is an ancient natural seasoning that has been used in many baking products as a decoration or as a condiment. These certified organic seeds have a blue-black color and a nutty flavor, so they can be a superb spice to add to breads, muffins and pretzels. Similarly, they taste incredible in salads or noodles and could be used as an enhancement in cake batters or organic cooking. Traditionally they are also used in salad dressings, but taste just as good in rice or spice blends. With low-alkaloid and high oil content, refrigeration will slow oxidation and prolong rack life. Under proper conditions, the seeds may germinate, but herb and spice seeds are not intended for sprouting purposes and might not germinate. Organic poppy seeds contribute to a healthy lifestyle. They pack a nice dose of beneficial nutrients which include minerals (iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, zinc and calcium), polyunsaturated fats like Omega-3 and Omega-6 which have a major role in the right brain functioning and the proper body development and the Folate/vitamin B9. This vitamin helps alleviate depression, it stimulates the generating of red blood cells and baffles heart problems.
