Annatto Seed Powder

Annatto Seed Powder

SKU: 11022

Traditionally ground annatto seeds have been used as a coloring agent, most notably to make naturally white cheeses turn orange. But annatto seed powder, also called achiote powder, is gaining popularity as a spice in its own right. It is used as the primary ingredient in achiote paste (recado rojo,) which seasons many Mexican and Puerto Rican dishes. Achiote paste is a ground mixture of annatto seeds along with aromatic herbs and whole earthy spices such as cumin, coriander, Mexican oregano, cloves, and garlic. (We have all these in stock... come get what you need to make your own homemade recado rojo!)


2 oz / 56.7 g resealable zipper bag.
