It is apparently spelled Annato and Annatto, but it isn't bugs. It is used as both a spice and a coloring/dye.

Here is more about it: http://www.thespicehouse.com/product/product_23_description.php

But I don't disagree that most grain and nut foods, at least, have bug shell content. The difference was that it appeared to be advertised!

Sorry I had the wrond "spice" in mind. It's cochineal and carmine that are made from bug juice! :)
