Squid ink is a kind of dark pigment which  some cephalopods release as an escape strategy. These marine animals are able to emit this pigment, which is popularly called "tinta de calamar" to blind the attacker and to escape. This ink is very popular in Mediterranean countries for the preparation of some recipes.

Ingredients: cuttlefish ink, water and salt.

Contents: 4 packets of 4gr each


Dilute and add to the stew, 1gr is enough to spice 100 gr

Culinary uses:

A popular dish in Spain is squid in its own ink, stewed until very soft and accompanied by a thick sauce which usually includes, aside from ink, tomato and onion. A very famous dish is also black rice which gets its color from the squid ink. It similarly gives color to a dish in the Italian kitchen, where it is used to prepare spaghetti al nero di seppia.

Nutritional value:

Recently it was discovered that squid ink, in addition to serving as a condiment on different plates, contains a number of amino acids and polysaccharides very efficient in preventing and curing some diseases. Researchers have found that this substance acts actively in the treatment of depression.


Conservas Cambados is located in the Ria de Arousa, famed for the size and abundance of its sealife. This lake favors the cultivation of bivalves such as clam and cockles or shellfish such as mussels which are grown in floating nurseries called "rafts". The careful selection of the best raw materials from the Galician Rias and the traditional process of preparation makes this artisan product very notable in its quality.
