Abstract: A study was conducted to obtain an economic method to produce a powder of annatto (Bixa orellana L.) having a high concentration of bixin, with ethyl alcohol as the extracting liquid solvent. Two sources of seeds were tested, one of which contained 1.88% and the other 2.35% bixin. After processing, a final dried product was obtained with 65.47% of bixin and an extraction yield of 4.33% in relation to seeds of higher concentration of bixin.
