What is Achiote?

Achiote is another name for annatto seeds, (Bixa orellana) and achiote paste is the Mexican condiment that gets its main flavor from annatto seeds. Achiote (or annatto) is native to the tropical areas of the Americas, including the Caribbean and Mexico. The Spanish brought this small tree from the Americas to Southeast Asia in the 1600s, where it is now a common food ingredient. It’s also produced in India and West Africa. Achiote can be in paste or powder form as long as the base is ground annatto.

Spiceology offers an Achiote Blend in a large, chef-sized container, available as gluten-free, vegan and Kosher certified.
