Annatto is a gluten-free ingredient.

Wikipedia link

Annatto, sometimes called Roucou, is a derivative of the achiote trees of tropical regions of the Americas, used to produce a red food coloring and also as a flavoring. It scent is described as "slightly peppery with a hint of nutmeg" and flavor as "slightly sweet and peppery"[1].

Some of the older texts/sources do say it is not gluten-free, but this is untrue.

Annato is gluten-free, dairy-free and suitable for a vegan diet. It comes from a non-grain plant source.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

if you have questions about ingredients, you really should read Dr. Greens book, the hidden epidemic (this isn't an add, i just found it very helpful, it was like my bible at first, it cleared up a ton of the celiac myths!) and if i'm not mistaken thats where i learned that anatto was ok!


gluten-free since april 05

for the love of gluten-free rice krispies, can we all as a group realize that "celiacs" only refers to a group of people with celiac disease. it is not "celiacs or celiac's disease". it drives me nutso!

I didn't think Annatto Coloring had gluten - I found a site that had a ton of things that did not have gluten but are listed as having it ... I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks for the book suggestion. I am reading gluten for dummies right now, it's a good book too!
