Annatto extract is a natural carotenoid color extracted from the coatings of seeds from the tropical achiote shrub and can be used in either oil-soluble (bixin) or water-soluble (norbixin) forms. It ranges from yellow to orange to red-orange in hue depending on the application and dosage rate. This natural color is a staple in the food and beverage industry, especially dairy, because it provides stable, economical orange shades. Certified Organic liquid and powder annatto is available.
Our annatto is available in a wide variety of forms and strengths, making it applicable for use in almost any application, and our strong global contracts with farmers ensure a stable transparent supply chain.
