This water based cheese coloring is naturally derived from the Annatto tree and will impart an appetizing yellow color to cheese. Most cheese will yellow slightly in the aging process, but if you want a rich yellow color annatto is a great option.

Does what it is supposed to do
The Curds from two gallons of Whole Milk with 1/4 tsp Annatto Coloring in 1/4cup non-chlorinated water turned out great in color. This was for a marbled-like mix of Colby cheese. The picture of the mixed cheese curd in the form is after the first 15 minute press. This product is well worth it for the look.
Love this stuff!
Super easy to use. An ingredient I feel good adding to my cheese.
My first ever farmhouse cheddar. I love the color and the fact that you can adjust it to your liking. Love the quality and super fast shipping I get at New England Cheese Making Supply.
Nice color easy to use
Love this coloring. Easy to use. Great color. Pictures of Colby step 1, 1st press, and ready for brine
Lots of color.
I have used this not only to color my goat cheeses but also in my mac and cheese I make with a white cheddar powder. Kids do not realize that it's not the name brand box mac and cheese. I at least know what I am feeding my family. Remember it take just 1 or 2 drops to give some color. A bottle will last me for years. I store it wrapped in paper towels in astic baggies in my fridge.
