Roasted ground Wattleseed has a diverse number of uses in the kitchen, from baking to thickening of sauces and casseroles, to ice cream.

A beautiful nutty, mild coffee flavour. Can be mixed with regular coffee for a flavour boost. Delicious used to flavour chocolate, cheesecake or meringue.

By dark-roasting Wattleseed, the most delightful aroma of nutty fresh roasted coffee is released and can be used as a beverage or as an addition to chocolate or desserts.

Every week we make a bread in the breadmaker always adding a teaspoon of ground wattleseed.

Aboriginals used wattle seed to make a type of flour, cooking this often in ovens made in a hole in the ground using hot coals and hot rocks.

Wattleseed contains potassium, calcium, iron and zinc in fairly high concentrations. With a low glycemic index, they are good for diabetics, providing a steady stream of sugars that do not produce sudden rises in blood glucose levels.

Most vitamins are found except for C, B12 and riboflavin. they are high in fibre – over 30%.

    The unique flavour of wattle!

    Posted by Joy Lubawy on 21st Dec 2016

    I tried harvesting some of my own, with the help of the white cockatoos! After 3 hours of patient separating, cleaning, dry roasting and grinding I had 7 grams of seed! Seeing I need 20 grams of seed for a recipe I have been experimenting with, I figured I needed to buy it, rather than gather. I am so glad. Wonderful flavour and much more available.
    Very prompt service, well packed and presented, will buy again.

    Wonderful

    The key ingredient to my rich tomato chutney is NOT the tomatoes but wattleseed! And judges at agricultural shows have agreed, awarding me first prizes. Now I want to experiment with it more in cakes and desserts. A great unique taste.

    Good product; timely delivery; expensive postage

    Posted by Brett on 24th Feb 2016

    The Wattleseed product was exactly what my son was after for his recipe for Food Studies at secondary school. Flavoursome and fresh. It turned up in good time, but when I discovered it came from Jimboomba, 25 minutes south of where we live, I was a little disappointed in the postage cost.

    Taste Australia response: Minimum parcel size for Australia Post is 500gm. If an item is not documents and you need it sent Express Post then parcel prices apply.
