Poppy Seeds (4 Pound Bag)

Don’t let the small size of the poppy seed hide what science has confirmed. This tiny seed is a powerhouse of nutrition, loaded with healthy nutrients, minerals and anti-oxidants! For starters, poppy seeds are nearly 50% unsaturated essential fatty acids, including oleic and lineolic acids—important Omega-6 compounds known to fight heart and cardiovascular diseases. The natural enzymes and fiber in these seeds contribute to overall digestive health. In addition, poppy seeds are a great source of plant-based B-complex vitamins including thiamin, plus important minerals such as magnesium (hard to find in today’s diets), potassium, calcium, copper and zinc. With so much going for it, the humble poppy seed is bound to find its way into the diet plans of health-conscious people everywhere. If you count yourself among them, great news! For you can easily buy the finest quality poppy seeds in quantity, direct to your door from Superior Nut Store, at a great low price!

We’re proud to offer some of the freshest, most delicious poppy seeds on the market. You’ll love their delicate, slightly nutty flavor, and you’ll positively revel in their big-time crunch. You’ll find that incorporating these tasty seeds into your daily food plan is a snap, because their flavor profile lends itself so well to so many other foods. Of course, there are the classics that everybody knows and loves: lemon poppy seed chicken, poppy seed dressing, poppy seed muffins, and of course, the granddaddy of decadence: luscious, impossible-to-resist lemon poppy seed coffee cake! But there are so many other ways to enjoy the mild, mellow flavor of poppy seeds, for they can be added to virtually any salad or vegetable dish, hot breakfast cereal, puddings and casseroles, and a host of delectable baked goods. And don’t forget, poppy seeds make a wonderfully soothing bedtime tea. For all of that, our fresh 4-lb. pack is the perfect choice. Enjoy!

Hungarian Christmas Cake
The poppy seeds used in my Hungarian Baegli recipe contributed to the family consensus of the best Baegli ever !
ProsFresh packed. Freaky fast order processing. Good tracking info and correspondence.
ConsHad to grind the seeds for the pastry filling, but probably good because whole seeds hold their freshness longer than ground product.

Fresh and budget friendly.
Used a portion for a very tasty poppy seed strudel, the way my mom used to make it. Using canned and prepared poppy seeds never gave me you such delicious cake.

Nod of Approval
For enjoying poppy seeds that doesn't necessarily entail baking, the quality is very good and the price more reasonable than other brands of similar quality. As long as the standard of quality and price is consistent, then I plan to become a frequent shopper placing my order whilst enjoying a relaxing cup of tea. Cheers!
ProsSeemingly unwashed. Rich color and taste, Reasonably priced.
ConsRunning out and having to wait for more.

Relatively fresh poppy seads
It is very hard to find fresh poppy seeds in the USA that are not bitter. The bitterness is usually not an issue if used for decorative purposes (like on bagels) but become very important if used as the main filling. My main use is "makos beigli" -- a Hungarian roll with plenty of filling in it. Other use would be a strudel or pasta with poppy seed and honey. Once tasted, the seeds should be neutral, slightly nutty in taste: this was the way we have bought it at the farmers market while I was growing up in Hungary. If they were bitter, you walked away. These nuts are also bitter, although they carry an expiration tag that is more than a year year ahead. They should not be bitter at all, but they are, although not as bad as other brands I bought on-line. I kind of gave up on finding good quality poppy seeds here in the US. So I did not return them, partly because these are not stale (often happens with bitter poppy seeds) just bitter. I have used potato pure in the filling that takes away bitterness and made roll tasting OK.

The Awesomeness Abounds
Very fresh, not overly processed and washed or at all bleached, both of my orders came a day earlier than expected, which is always nice! I would recommend these to anyone making traditional Eastern European pastries
ProsGood price, good quality.
ConsWish you could pick exactly how much you could order, instead of pre determined bag sizes.

Excellent all around
These poppy seeds are excellent quality. No strange smell or taste, they have that natural nutty flavour. [I used to order from Amazon, but most of the seeds they carry are NOT GOOD anymore.] Superior shipping also! I've ordered twice from the Superior Nut Company (both times: in the morning or around 12pm) and they have shipped the same day. So like the title says: EXCELLENT ALL AROUND. Product and shipping get 6/5

Perfect Poppy Seeds
What a pleasure to do business with this company. Product was very fresh, rich, earthy, and perfect for baking and the soap I am going to make for Christmas presents. Priced very reasonable and shipping was very fast. Since this is was exactly what I was expectin, I will be stocking up and refrigerating them as I am sure they will keep well. Buy it while I can, and the price stays fair. Thanks!
ProsFresh, not washed, but sifted, and good for you. Lots of omega 3's and protein for your diet. Will make a perfect exfoliating soap.
