Poppyseed oil - filtered: Poppy is a richer source of calcium than cow’s milk.
Poppyseed oil is a source of vitamins, minerals, unsaturated fatty acids, carbohydrates, proteins, and fibre. Linoleic acid is also found in poppy seeds in considerable quantities. It is also rich in healthy fats, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and iron. It does not contain opium because it is pressed from mature seeds, which no longer contain opium.
It has beneficial effects on the circulatory and digestive systems. Thanks to its ability to pump blood into the skin and remove itching, it is also used in cosmetics (for massage purposes) and, for example, together with sesame oil for anti-wrinkle products.
Poppyseed oil is used in oriental cuisine. As a food valued for its essential fatty acid content, it is recommended for use in cold cooking.
