Ground Annatto Seed

Ground Annatto Seed is a spice commonly used in Latin American, Caribbean, and Filipino cuisine. It is made by grinding the seeds of the achiote tree into a fine powder. The spice has an earthy, slightly sweet, and peppery flavor, and imparts a bright orange or red color to food.

The ground seed can be used as a natural food coloring agent, as it gives food a vibrant orange or red hue. It is often used to color dishes such as rice, stews, soups, sauces, and meat marinades. In Latin America, the spice is used to color different types of cheese, such as Queso Fresco and Queso Blanco.

Aside from its coloring properties, ground annatto seed also adds flavor to dishes. It can be used as a seasoning in its own right or as part of a spice blend. In Caribbean cuisine, the spice is often used as an ingredient in jerk seasoning for meat and fish. It can also be mixed with cumin, oregano, garlic, and vinegar to make a flavorful marinade for pork or chicken.

Ground Annatto Seed is an all around great spice that can be used in a variety of dishes. Whether you use it to color rice, add spice to a marinade, or season meat, ground annatto seed is a great ingredient to have in your pantry. We offer this in multiple bulk sizes.
