  • Kakadu Plum – has the aroma and flavour of stewed apples and pears, Kakadu Plum has the highest natural source of Vitamin C – up to 100 times the vitamin C of oranges. It has been used by the Indigenous community for centuries as the powerful antioxidant and immune boosting superfood.
  • Strawberry Gum – also known as Eucalyptus olida and Forestberry, it has a classic ‘berry’ flavour and is high in auto oxidants.
  • Aniseed Myrtle – has a subtle sweet liquorice flavour and is traditionally used for weight loss, lactation and digestion upsets.
  • Macadamia and Wattleseed – Macadamia nuts are a rich source of energy with many health-benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health and wellness.
