Poppy seeds are the oilseeds of the opium poppy plant, used for their unique culinary texture and essence. While native to the Mediterranean regions, they are mostly cultivated today in the Netherlands, Australia, Romania and Turkey.

When boiled with milk and ground into a paste, the poppy seed’s unique flavors really shine, a fact reflected by hundreds of years of culinary history in countries such as Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Serbia, Bosnia and the Czech Republic.
