Achiote, also known as annatto, is a natural food coloring and flavoring that comes from the seeds of the annatto tree. The vibrant red-orange pigment is commonly used in Latin American, Caribbean, and Filipino cuisine to add a distinct color and earthy flavor to dishes such as rice, stews, and marinades. Achiote has also been used traditionally for medicinal purposes due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Its versatility in both culinary and health applications makes it a valuable ingredient to have in your pantry.
