Annatto seeds grow in pods on the achiote (Bixa orellana) which is found in the Caribbean, West Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. The colouring bixin, norbixin (E160b), won by extraction, is used to dye food and cosmetics.
Naturias offers you Annatto seeds from West Africa. We obtain the Annatto seeds directly of a farmer who cultivates his fields without use of pesticides. The seeds are reaped, dried and packed by hand. Our store in Ghana has a capacity of 36 tons and we can supply you rapidly depending on harvest and order quantity.
You also can, however, obtain bixin and norbixin from us. If you should wish a specific concentration, you are welcome to get in touch with us or make use of our contact form.Products
