Authentic, premium quality cuttlefish ink!
Cuttlefish ink, or 'nero di seppia', has a smooth oceanic flavour, and adds a delicate marine sweetness to pasta, braises and risotti. It has a brilliant black colour.
Nero di seppia is used to colour both pasta and pasta sauce as it subtly enhances tomato-based sauces.
La Riunione harvests ink from the sepia officinalis cuttlefish, taken from the north eastern Atlantic Ocean. The ink is homogenised and salt is added, along with a little water to prevent the ink from drying out. Nothing is added to increase the bulk of the product.
Cuttlefish ink should be refrigerated after opening.
