100% pure black Squid Ink Powder, also known as cuttlefish black ink powder.
Black Sepia Squid Ink, which is appreciated for its natural black coloring in the kitchen to color and spice up food in the Mediterranean kitchen, is often used in pasta, risotto and seafood to make it into a deep black and give it a pleasant salty, umami-rich flavor.
Dissolve the sepia ink powder in a small amount of water and then mix it with the ingredients/food. The ink powder is a strong food dye so that even a small amount of powder is enough to achieve a deep black color and slightly salty taste. With the bright black color and squid flavor, you can really enjoy everything the sea has to offer in terms of seafood. Black sepia ink is 100% safe to eat and has been used as natural black food dye for thousands of years. A classic Spanish dish is squid served in a sauce of its own ink, called “En Su Tinta”.
Our squid ink powder contains no preservatives, thickeners, sugars nor any stabilizers as the liquid version of squid ink does.
Our powder is very yielding and has a much longer shelf life than liquid black sepia ink.

Black sepia ink is produced by collecting the ink sack from squid producing farms (seafood farms) which are then dried and sterilized. Afterwards we filter out any impurities such as remaining parts from the squid and spray dry the black squid ink. This process is followed by sieving the final powder prior to packing the powder into our resealable aluminium doypacks and passing inspection.
