Are annatto colors vegan?

Annatto colors are a natural food ingredient derived from the seeds of the Achiote tree, which is native to South America. These colors range from yellow to deep red and are commonly used in the food industry as a natural food coloring agent. Annatto colors are often used in dairy products, such as cheese and butter, as well as in baked goods and processed meats. In addition to providing vibrant color, annatto colors have antioxidant properties and may also have anti-inflammatory effects. These versatile colors are a popular choice for those seeking natural food colorings that are free from synthetic additives.
