what is vegan

Is poppy seed vegan?

Poppy seeds are small, kidney-shaped oilseeds that come from the opium poppy plant. These tiny black or white seeds have a nutty and slightly sweet flavor while their texture is crunchy with a slight chewy center. They are commonly used as a garnish or ingredient in baked goods such as bagels, breads, cakes, and muffins. Poppy seeds add both flavor and visual appeal to dishes, but should be used in moderation due to their high fat content. Additionally, these seeds contain trace amounts of morphine and codeine, which can lead to positive drug tests if consumed in large enough quantities.

Poppy seed is a vegan food ingredient.
