What Are Unwashed Poppy Seeds?
Nutty and pleasant in taste, poppy seeds are nutritious oilseeds used as condiment in cooking. Although the seeds are obtained from the dry fruits (pods) of the poppy plant (opium poppy), they are entirely free from any sinister side effects of other poppy plant products such as the opium poppy.
The Poppy plant is a biennial herb of the East Mediterranean and Asia belonging to the Papaveraceae family, in the genus: Papaver. Poppy seeds contain many plant derived chemical compounds that found to have anti-oxidant and health promoting properties.
Why Should I Get Unwashed Poppy Seeds?
Their unique nutty, aromatic flavour is a result of the high content of fatty acids and essential volatile oils, which comprise about 50% of net weight. The seeds are especially rich in oleic, linoleic acids and B-complex vitamins such as thiamine, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid.
Oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated fatty acid, helps lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increase HDL or "good cholesterol" levels in the blood. Research studies suggest that Mediterranean diet which is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids helps to prevent coronary artery disease and strokes by favouring healthy blood lipid profile.
The Poppy seeds outer husk is a good source of dietary fibre and just 100 g of seeds provide 19. 5 g or 51% of recommended daily levels (RDA) of fibre. Much of this fibre is metabolically inert content which adds 'bulk' to the seeds while digesting. They absorb water travelling down the digestive tract, thereby assisting with the regulation of bowel movements.
