Description

“The sun on your skin”

Rich in Bixin in synergy with Selenium, Urucum is a natural anti-oxidant that helps maintain the colour of 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 entered 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.

As a traditional condiment, it colours all your dishes (rice, meat, Kurakkan, salad…) and flavours them with a delicate touch.

FLAVORS

Very characteristic notes of saffron and mustard seeds. Can be used as a natural food colouring to obtain orange rust hues.
