Wonderful Wattleseed

Wattleseeds are the edible seeds from any of 120 species of Australian Acacia that were traditionally used as food by Aboriginal Australians and eaten either green (and cooked) or dried (and milled to a flour) to make a type of bush bread.

Acacia seed flour has gained popularity in Australia due to its high nutritional content, hardiness, and low toxicity. It has a low glycemic index, it is suitable for incorporation into diabetic foods. It is used due to its chocolate, coffee, hazelnut flavour profile. It is added to ice cream, granola, chocolate, bread, and used by chefs to enhance sauces and dairy desserts. A beautiful nutty, mild coffee flavour. Can be mixed with regular coffee for a flavour boost. Delicious used to flavour chocolate, cheesecake or meringue.
