Natural Colors / Our Colors / Annatto

Annatto is the seed of the tropical bush Bixa Orellana, also known as the lipstick tree, a plant native to Central and South America. Although annatto can be used as a spice in traditional cooking for its flavor, the carotenoids found in the coating of its seeds can deliver a bright yellow to orange color suitable for a variety of food and cosmetic applications.

Annatto is not stable at low pH, however, FMC has developed a product that can be used in mild acidic conditions such as fermented dairy products. FMC annatto colors have excellent light and thermal stability.
