The term wattle seed refers to a group of edible seeds which are used as food by the Aborigines of Australia. The wattleseed group includes most of the species of acacia grown in Australia. They are used in different ways like green seeds, dried seeds and by making them into powder.

More and more people are becoming health conscious and are exploring new ways of keeping fit with the help of a good diet. This search has resulted in the inclusion of many natural products in the diet for beneficial effects. Wattleseed is one such inclusion which is gaining popularity. This is because of reasons like high nutrition content, available in abundance and low in toxicity. It is best suited for people suffering from Diabetes. The wattle seed is used in desserts and ice creams and many more dairy products. Wattleseeds have a history of around 6000 years when it was used by Australian Aborigines to add nutrition to their diet. They had discovered about 40 varieties of this species of plant. The name wattle was assigned by the early colonists as they used the branches of these species to build houses and this method was named as ‘wattle and daub’ in Europe. Earlier it was used as green seeds or dried and powdered, but presently they are dried, fried and powdered to make extracts. The seeds are gathered is a labor oriented work and collected when they are green and young. The wattle seed powder and essence in the liquid form are available in the market. It is used in the household and also commercially in making bread. The use is advocated more for patients who need a stable and nutritious diet.

Though wattle seed was discovered and used thousands of years ago, its value is being acknowledged now slowly. More and more people are including them in their diet for the many benefits they offer.
