Annatto seed is perhaps best known for its colour and is the orange in cheddar cheese, however it does have a flavour and aroma - often described as a mixture slightly between pepper and nutmeg.


Often used in Indian, Latin American and Caribbean cooking.


Annatto is also known as roucou or achiote.
