Wattleseed

Ever come across wattleseed in your food or drink?

Wattleseeds are produced by an Australian Acacia tree and were traditionally used by aborigines. Its flavor has coffee, chocolate and hazelnut characteristics, and has a low glycemic index (low GI foods reduce risk of heart disease, reduces hunger, helps prolong physical endurance).


Made as a coffee, it is hence caffeine free. However there is an option to mix it with ordinary coffee if a caffeine hit is needed. Other uses include bread (where the seeds are milled and used as flour), ice cream, and desserts.

This coffee (pictured on the left) is available in Bush Tucker Cafe at the Brambuk Center (Grampians).

Although it is not widely available in the nearest supermarket, it might be a good time to start for the search!

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
