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.

Love the annatto natural coloring. Just a few drops gave my Colby cheese a beautiful coloring.
Always been pleased with this annatto from NEC. Works as advertised. Use a the recommended amount dissolved in 1/4 cup distilled water and add it well before rennet is added. Added just a bit to my gouda (because - well, because i wanted to! lol). Highly recommend. Arrived quickly after ordering.
Arrived in a couple of days, use to color cheddar and anything else I need. Great price, great service and the website is full of great information! A strong recommendation from me. Bill
Coloring works exactly as described, only wish they had usage instructions listed in 1/x tsp instead of #of drops
