What is different from the pastes marshmallows? Now most people immediately respond – form. In fact, the form – not the main difference between them. Few people know that candy – traditional Russian dish. It was born in the XIV century, when apple and honey rescued were brewed from honey and jam Antonov apples. The mass turned out so thick that it had to be cut into pieces. It looks like an old recipe for marmalade.

It is. But unlike jelly, candy Russian had its own secret, which is carefully stored and protected. In the mass, to make it white, added to egg whites. In the XIX century, the Russian secret goodies still found abroad. French chefs have also added to the its jelly proteins, but in a somewhat different proportions. Thus began the story of a new confectionery product, which for lightness and whiteness has been called "Zephyr." Next, the history of the marshmallow and pastes was similar to the history of marmalade. Since the XIX century, when the invention of a variety of analogs – dyes, fragrances, thickeners, delicacy became more diverse in taste, color and flavor.

Zephyr began to cover with chocolate or sugar glaze, add nuts, pieces of fruit jelly, shower wafer crumbs – all limited only by the imagination of confectioners. Unusual relative of the pastes and marshmallow sweetness is an American called marshmallow. In terms of composition, it's a treat close to the original recipe pastes – applesauce and sugar. But there is a significant difference. Instead of proteins, the Americans were added to the mix water, cornstarch and boiled grape juice. These ingredients give the same quality as proteins – a treat was white and easily whipped. Now marshmallows with different tastes and flavors enjoyed the same popularity as marshmallows, candy and marmalade. Interestingly, in English language does not make a distinction between the marshmallows, candy and sweets of the American version, compiling all the three delicacies under one common name of marshmallow. But the real sweet tooth always feel the difference.
