Very few people think of annatto as something to be avoided, so it is being added to new foods every day.

Have you found it in anything that isn’t on my list? I would love to hear about it!  Please use the comment box below to send me foods that you have found.

    I have recently been diagnosed with an annatto allergy. My symptoms are basically airway restrictions: total loss of voice, excessive and continuous coughing and difficulty breathing.

    I have found annatto in the Kashi Go Lean Crunchy Bars. I have also found “coloring” in Country Crock Mashed Potatoes. They do not list annatto, just “color added”, but my reaction is the same as if I had eaten annatto. (I don’t get the same reaction to turmeric, caramel, yellow 5 or any other colorings)

    Since for me eating annatto means the use of an epipen, I’d be very interested to know where else it’s found. I unfortunatley have found many of the foods on your list the hard way!

    Thanks so much,
