Organic Annatto Seeds Powder
Bixa orellana L.
Annatto seeds powder is an orange-red condiment and food coloring, derived from the seeds of the aciote tree. It can be used to give foods an extra yellow or orange color due to its various carotenoid pigments (mainly bixin and norbixin). Therefore annatto (EU-approved E160b) is a natural alternative to synthetic food coloring compounds.
