“The sun on your skin”
Rich in bixin in synergy with Selenium, Urucum is a natural anti-oxidant that helps maintain the skin.
Bixin is similar to beta carotene: Urucum contains 100 times more bixin than beta carotene.
When the Portuguese arrived on Brazilian territory and penetrated the Amazon, they found that the Indians were coated with a red powder to protect themselves from the sun and mosquitoes! It was actually Urucum. The Portuguese named it “the Red Skins” after this meeting.
Traditional condiment, it colours all your dishes (rice, meat, Kurakkan, salad…) and flavours them with a delicate touch.
Very characteristic notes of saffron and mustard seeds. Can be used as a natural food colouring to obtain orange rust hues.
