A multipurpose product!
Squid Ink can be used as food coloring and flavoring, providing a very dark black color and a slightly salty tasting flavor to foods such as pasta or risotto. Some popular cephalopod ink dishes include spaghetti, risotto, and paella. Just adding a teaspoon of the ink goes a long way in color and taste! Fun Fact: Squid ink has many non-food applications such as in traditional medicine, writing, art, and cosmetics.
