Annatto seeds are used in Latin America and the Philippines for staining food. In the Caribbean, the seeds are fried usually in (animal or vegetable) fat; after discarding the seeds, the then golden-yellow fat is used to fry vegetables or meat. In the Philippines, the seeds are more often ground to a powder and added to soups and stews. By these procedures, a golden yellow to brown colour is achieved. Today in Brazilian traditional medicine, Annatto is used to treat heartburn and stomach distress caused by spicy foods, and as a mild diuretic and mild purgative while traditional medicine in Peru recommends it as a vaginal antispetic and cicatrizant, as a wash for skin infections, and for liver and stomach disorders.
