Opium Alkaloids in Harvested and Thermally Processed Poppy Seeds
TLDR
It was found that in harvested poppy Seeds, and thermally processed poppy seeds, if used in normal levels would not exceed the recommended acute reference dose, and it was also shown that the levels of all alkaloids reduce when thermally processing, in comparison with harvested, untreated seeds.
