Poppy Seed oil is an edible oil from poppy seeds. The oil has culinary and pharmaceutical uses, as well as long established uses in the making of paints, varnishes, and soaps. Today, all of these uses continue, and poppyseed oil has additional culinary and pharmaceutical uses. Particularly notable is its use as a carrier for medicinal iodine and drugs. Poppy seeds are notable for being especially high in tocopherols (other than vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)). Poppyseed oil has been reported to contain 30.9 mg gamma-tocopherol per 100 g. It also contains alpha and gamma tocotrienols.
