Annatto Seed, Bixa Orellana, is the seed from a flowering tree of the Bixaceae family. This tree is also known as a lipstick tree, as much of the red color found in lipstick is derived from the dye found in the pulp which surrounds the Annatto Seeds.

Annatto Seeds are small triangular shaped, about 1/2 cm wide, and velvet red with a soft texture.
