Product Description

Annatto is an orange-red food coloring or condiment made from the seeds of the achiote tree (Bixa orellana), which grows in tropical regions in South and Central America (1Trusted Source).

It has several other names, including achiote, achiotillo, bija, urucum, and atsuete, the lipstick tree. Annatto seeds have expectorant properties. Therefore, they are known to be used to prevent mucus-related disorders like coughs, asthma, and bronchitis. It also clears the mucus from the lungs.

Annatto powder is made from the seeds of the annatto. It is a natural food coloring and possesses medicinal properties. Traditionally annatto is used for treating disorders, such as heartburn, diarrhea, ulcers, and skin issues. Annatto may have antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.

May be beneficial for the eyes, heart, bone, anti-aging & vitamin E. Annatto seeds help balance, detoxify, metabolize, and strengthen the liver.
