This month I am hosting a guest event on “SYF&HWS – Cook With SPICES” Series and
chose the spice “POPPY SEEDS” as this months theme.

These seeds contain several vital minerals like zinc, calcium, magnesium, which aid in the smooth functioning of all organs of the body. Poppy seeds are an excellent source of energy as well since they contain carbohydrates . The calorie content in Poppy Seed is low. Poppy seeds are also rich in oleic acid, Poppy seeds also contain around 45-50% of unsaturated fatty acids.
Some of the health benefits are:
