Safe to eat lemon poppy seed muffins??

Someone told me no it's not safe and I can't find info on internet. Anybody have any idea? I am craving them SO bad!

  • I did a lot of research by googling it...and nearly every source said it was perfectly fine. In fact, in India and the Middle East, they use poppy seeds as a source of nutrients for breastfeeding moms and babies. The only possible harm it could do is cause a positive toxicology result on your pee test, and even then you'd have to eat like fifty muffins for it to have any effect. I ate two muffins before a doctor's appointment one day, my UA came back perfectly normal and nothing happened to my baby. Eat away!

  • They are perectly fine to eat as long as its not in large amounts. If you eat alot of it, it could elevate the levels of morphine in your body. But i doubt you'll be able to eat that much to do any harm. I mean, you'd literally have to eat a poppy seed muffin morning, day, and night everyday. The only thing it will do is show up as you doing drugs on a pee test. Thats the most harm it will do. So eating a muffin here and there is ok to eat.

  • I just put in a bunch of different stuff like "poppy seeds when pregnant" or "are poppy seeds safe while pregnant". I did it a few weeks ago, when I was making those muffins I ate, lmao. I was worried about it hurting the baby but it was nice to know that it was okay.
