Very well washed
I had expected unwashed seeds from other reviews but what I received was clearly thoroughly washed, so I assume the supplier or process has changed. They did not have that nasty peppery/ chemical smell that many washed seeds do these days, but still I prefer all my ingredients untouched so that I know exactly what I am getting, as well as not losing oils that can have health benefits and with these poppy seeds in particular the flavor is so subtle that it is easily rinsed off. I am still giving a high rating since the transaction was fast and easy, and the cost is great. Just not for anyone that wants unwashed
Prosfast shipping, good price

I use poppy seeds in my art--quite a lot of them actually. A piece may take up to 5 lbs. of seeds! Your seeds are clean and wonderful to work with. They create a special texture that I can't get any other way. And the delivery time is awesome: very next day! For an artist, it makes a difference. I know that I can keep working without interruption. Thank you, Nuts.com! You guys are nuts!

I have ordered these seeds many times over the past several years and the quality is always very high.
Shipping is always right on the designated date, or even earlier some times.
I will continue ordering from here, and continue recommending others to this site.

Great lseeds with great health benefits
These seeds are the best! Great quality, very fresh and that wholesome smell we all like! Cant go wrong with these!

This order can quick. I checked for freshness by seeing if the seeds would sprout and they did. The seeds had a very nutty aroma which is good....I've bought from other suppliers and they said fresh however their seeds did not sprout and they also didn't have an aroma so I knew they were old.
So far this company gets a 5 star in my book.

Great Quality Seeds
These are what you want is poppy seeds. They taste great. I fill pastries with them. They are not washed with dirty chemicals that ruin the taste. They taste so good that they make m want to make some sort of drink with them. It is a little bitter, but tastes so good.

A common flavoring in European and Middle Eastern foods, poppy seeds are usually added to baked goods to bring a little spice and crunch to breads and pastries. Long revered for their medicinal purposes, in antiquity poppy seeds symbolized honor as well as prosperity and fertility. On top of its protein content, poppy seeds are high in calcium, manganese, and iron, key nutrients for the prevention of diabetes, osteoporosis, and anemia. An excellent source of fiber and iron, poppy seeds are high in thiamine, a B-vitamin necessary for the proper functioning of the enzymes our bodies utilize to metabolize carbohydrates. The oil from poppy seeds offers a significant health bonus; specifically it’s an efficient delivery vehicle for chemotherapy drugs in patients with liver cancer. Poppy seed oil is also an excellent delivery vehicle for iodine. It’s been given to children and adults to stave off iodine deficiency which can manifest as goiter (a non-cancerous enlargement of the thyroid gland), or hypothyroidism (a sluggish thyroid). There have also been cases of mental retardation in the offspring of women who are iodine deficient while pregnant. The thyroid gland needs iodine to produce the hormones that control metabolism.
Although poppy plants come in several different varieties, we get commercial poppy seeds from the same variety that produces opium, and in the U.S., every part of the opium poppy is illegal except for the seed. Poppy seeds contain only trace amounts of the narcotic alkaloids found in morphine, codeine and of course, opium. While they only contain trace amounts of narcotic alkaloids, poppy seeds can be sufficient to trigger false-positives on drug tests. It can take 48 to 72 hours for these alkaloids to clear our bodies.

Somehow the succulent chicken, fresh lemon and poppy seeds combine to transform the ordinary into the amazing—give it a try!
