Poppy seeds are sold in market are boiled and all water are drained out and seeds are then dried and sold in the market. This is precaution taken by the government of India -so that people cannot grow tree out of this seeds. I am curious to know the chemical composition of the product sold in the market.

Some incorrect info given in this book - such as: "Poppy seeds are not fully formed until the plant matures, by which time the plant has lost all of it's opium potential. Poppy seeds do not contain opium or narcotics, as other parts of the plant"
Both poppy seeds and fully matured (and dried) poppy pods DO contain Opium. I am only adding this note because of the potential to fail drug testing after consuming poppy seeds.
