    I currently use Annatto seed from The Spice House, but Mountain Rose Herbs is probably your best bet..... Annatto is not a toxic substance. It is a seed that looks like a red chocolate chip. These seeds can easily be very bitter and nauseating. Unless you chew them thoroughly, they will be sickening in digestion and unpalatable. I used Annatto in fighting cancer because of its high Vitamin ... Show Full Comment

    I am allergic to most red foods and to Red #40. For some time I had been eating a cereal containing annatto with no ill effects, but eventually suffered the same symptoms as the other red foods caused. A bit of experimentation confirmed that the rash was associated with the annatto.

    Ingested as an ingredient in food.

I'm also sensitive to nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers) which also cause athritis-like symptoms--but I'm find if I carefully ... Show Full Comment

This was the only thing I had eaten different in recent days and it didn't show up immediately which made it harder to pinpoint. My problem was never treated by doctor or medication.

    My oldest son gets migraines from annatto. It took us years to find out what was causing his migraines and his high school years were ruined because of it. Annatto is being added to more and more foods, especially cheese, vanilla ice cream, and breading for frozen foods. Beware!
