  5. Just for the record.... Wattleseed is a highly versatile and nutritious flavouring invented by Vic Cherikoff in 1984. The product known commercially as Wattleseed is made by roasting a specific species of Acacia seed and has a flavour profile of coffee, chocolate and hazelnut. The seeds from around 120 species of Australian Acacia were traditionally used as food by Australian Aborigines and they were eaten either green (and cooked) or dried (and milled to a flour). Hope that helps..
