Annatto is a derivative of the
seed of the achiote trees (Bixa orellana L.) of tropical regions of the
Americas, used to produce a red food coloring. It is used in cheese,
margarine, butter, rice and smoked fish. Annatto is commonly found in

body paint, and as a lipstick. For this reason, the achiote is
sometimes called the lipstick-tree.
