Australian Native Foods Information

While Australian native foods are still relatively new to modern cuisine, indigenous Australians have known about their unique flavour profile and medicinal properties for thousands of years. Many native fruits and herbs are considered to be ‘super foods’, as they are rich in protein and antioxidants which are known to combat diseases including Alzheimers and cancer, as well as soothing everyday ailments including headaches and digestive complaints. The demand for Australian native foods has increased dramatically in recent years, as they are eco-friendly, drought tolerant and produce fruit more quickly than commercial crops. In addition, the fact that the produce is grown using aquaponics, means that crops use less water and there is no need for chemical fertilisers, pesticides or insecticides. The popularity of native food has made a significant impact on our national cuisine, with herbs including lemon myrtle and wattle seed now featuring regularly in dishes produced in fine dining venues throughout the world.
