Poppy Seed, White
The white poppy seed is often used in Indian or Middle Eastern cuisine to add thickness, texture and flavor to sauces.
The common black seeds are actually known as “blue” seeds. Blue seeds are usually found in baked goods like breads, bagels and cakes.
Poppy seed is an oilseed obtained from the poppy (Papaver somniferum). The tiny kidney-shaped seeds have been harvested from dried seed pods by various civilizations for thousands of years.
The seeds are used, whole or ground, as an ingredient in many foods - especially in pastry and bread, and they are pressed to yield poppyseed oil.
