Wattleseed (Acacia aneuro)

Wattleseed has been used in Indigenous Australian diets for over 40,000 years. Also known as acacia in some parts of the world, it is a good source of protein and minerals such as magnesium, zinc, calcium and iron.

Its flavour is often likened to a complex blend of coffee, chocolate and hazelnut with accent notes of raisins and sweet spices. For preparation, it was traditionally ground between two stones and from this, it was made into a paste that was eaten raw or baked.

It is also a good source of energy, averaging about 1,500 kilojoules per 100 grams. Because it is starch-based rather than sugar-based, it has a low glycemic index, ensuring that energy burns slowly over time, making you feel energetic for longer.
