"Nero di Seppia" or Cuttlefish Ink can come from almost any cephalopod such as squids, cuttlefish and octopus. The ink from the Cuttlefish is used as a food coloring and flavoring, providing a dark color and a slightly salty taste flavor to foods such as pasta or risotto.
Squid ink is most popular in Italy and Spain, and it's unique appearance and origin make it a gourmet delicacy in many other countries.
Suggestion: Some popular dishes include squid in squid ink, spaghetti in squid ink, squid ink risotto and paella. Squid ink is very low in calories and is used mostly as a condiment.

Squid ink is created from cuttlefish caught fresh from the Atlantic Ocean surrounding the beautiful Basque Country. Cuttlefish is a type of sepia, a relative of the squid, but has long been hailed as having more pristine ink that is better for cooking due to its rich, non-fishy flavor.

The ink is preserved with sea salt and remains good for up to 4 years in storage unopened. Once opened, use within 1-2 weeks. No artificial preservatives are added. You may freeze the remainder of the squid ink if need be.
It brings out the flavor nuances of each ingredient while adding mild seafood hints, without tasting 'fishy'. Its characteristic colour, as well as its texture and soft sea taste, makes our ink something unique within the world of cooking.
Ideal for seasoning dishes such as fish, rice, pasta, bread and croquettes.
