Why look to exotic locations to find the latest superfoods when our own backyard is home to some of the most wonderful foods on the planet? Yes! Native Australian foods are the original superfoods. They’ve sustained the Aboriginal people for over tens of thousands of years, and science is finally starting to reveal just how powerful they are. But what’s so super about them? And why should you add them to your pantry? Here’s a look at five of our home grown heroes—the original superfoods:
  • Davidson Plum

    Native to the rainforests of Northern NSW and Queensland, the Davidson Plum’s deep purple colour is due to its antioxidants.

  • Kakadu Plum

    The Kakadu Plum is the reigning queen of Australia’s home grown superfoods. Native to the Top End of Australia, the Kakadu Plum boasts vitamins & antioxidants. Skin care companies everywhere are adding it to their products thanks to its ability to moisturise, brighten skin and help to protect against the effects of ageing. As a food, Kakadu Plum is most commonly consumed as a dried fruit powder, which can be added to smoothies, desserts or breakfast bowls for a super boost.

  • Lemon Myrtle

    With a fresh clean lemony flavour and fragrance, Lemon Myrtle is delicious and is often enjoyed as a tea.

  • Mountain Pepper

    Mountain pepper packs a serious punch in its flavour. Also known as native pepper or Tasmanian pepper, it has a fruity taste with a hot and spicy chilli kick.

  • Wattleseed

    Nutritious wattleseeds have been part of the diet of Indigenous Australians for tens of thousands of years, When roasted, they have a delicious nutty, coffee aroma and a chocolate hazelnut flavour that can be used in breads, muffins, desserts, and muesli. Wattleseeds are also a caffeine-free alternative to coffee.
