Include Pouyoukas poppy seeds in your diet

By admin

Poppy seeds are essentially oilseeds obtained from the opium poppy. The ripe seeds are highly nutritious and less allergenic than many other seeds and nuts. While you might not think of poppy seeds as more than decoration for your bagel or salad dressing, the tiny black seeds prove that good things sometimes come in small packages. Pouyoukas poppy seeds are loaded with fibre, boasting 3.4 grams of dietary fibre per 2 tablespoon serving. Fibre not only adds bulk to your food which keeps you feeling full and prevents constipation, but it also lowers your blood cholesterol levels.

One teaspoon of poppy seeds also contains 4% of the recommended daily intake of phosphorous and calcium, two nutrients that help keep the teeth and bones strong. Due to their small size, Pouyoukas poppy seeds can be difficult to consume on their own. However, you can add a few spoonfuls of seeds to your cereal, smoothie or salad dressing. Here is a delicious and easy recipe for poppy seed cake.
