Substitute for Saffron

Annatto seed is often used as a substitute for saffron's golden color at a fraction of the cost, but it does not duplicate that spice's unique flavor. Instead, annatto seed has a slightly bitter and peppery flavor with a hint of mint.

Saves Prep Time

This 16 oz. container of annatto seed is a cost-efficient option for high-volume kitchens. Dehydrated spices also last longer than fresh ingredients and are easier to store, making them the perfect addition to any busy, high-output kitchen.

Versatile Ingredient

Annatto seed is both a spice and natural coloring and perfect for use in homemade butter and cheese and when preparing smoked fish or rice. When ground, this spice can also be added to soups and stews or made into a paste to spread on meat before grilling.

    Great Annatto Seed spice grinder seeds flavor grind natural orange

    The annatto seeds are great to place in tea bags to infuse my oils for my soaps and other various natural body products. It makes a beautiful orange.

    For the longest time I couldn't figure what to use this spice for but the occasion has arise. I decided to grind up the seed and use it in tamales. I used this in the masa and didn't notice too much of a change in the taste but it did give it a nice orange color. After looking it up it's mostly used to dye things and has a very subtle flavor. It is worth experiencing at least once.

    I use this in my homemade pickling spice to make it my own. It has a little bit of nutty to it so it is perfect. Thank you for the low price. And I will definitely be recommending to family and friends.

    Good annatto seed with great flavor. Bought this as a saffron substitute and it works well. Having a spice grinder is a must, this stuff is tough to grind.
