ORGANIC POPPY SEEDS, black
Black poppy seeds are an oilseed obtained from the dried seed pods of the poppy flower. These tiny, kidney-shaped seeds have been harvested by various civilizations for thousands of years for both culinary and sedative uses. To some extent, harvesting for poppy seeds is in conflict with harvesting for opium. Poppy seeds of superior quality are harvested from ripe seed pods whereas opium is harvested while the seed pods are still green and their latex is abundant.
Qualities: Poppy seeds are composed of 6% water, 28% carbohydrates, 42% fat, and 21% protein and are a rich source of thiamin, folate, and several essential minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.
Common use: the seeds are used, whole or ground, as an ingredient in many foods all over the world - especially in pastry and bread, or pressed to yield poppy seed oil.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place

Just what I expected
The item came in on time and seemed to be good quality.
So far, very good...
I suddenly found that there were shipping issues from the U.S. so I was very happy to come upon your site. Your prices are very good and I am a strong advocate of organic and non GMO products. Your site was easy to use.
