This dark cuttlefish ink is traditionally used in Mediterranean cuisine to colour pasta dough or risotto. This 'Tinta de Calamar' ink is released by the cuttelfish as it escapes from preditors in order to become 'invisible'.
Quantity for pasta: 2-3% cuttlefish ink by total amount of pasta dough, depending on the desired intensity of colour.
