Annatto Seeds, Ground

Expand Product Info ▼

Commonly known as annatto seed in the States, the correct term for the seeds of an annatto tree is achiote seeds. Native to South America, they have been used to color food and cosmetics. These seeds have a peppermint scent and a slightly peppery taste with just a hint of bitterness.

Annatto seeds have been used as a dye for fabrics and body paint since pre-Columbian times.

It's a tough process to work with annatto, as the dried seeds are very hard and quite difficult to grind, so we’ve done this for you. Ground seeds can added to soups and stews or made into a paste to be spread on fish or pork before grilling.
