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.
