If your customers have only ever tasted the very sweet, low grade marzipans that some manufacturers use on cakes or to make marzipan figures, they are in for a real treat when they try these high grade almond pastes! Our marzipans generally have a low sugar content (around 35%) whereas marzipans used for making figures or decorations will have a higher sugar content (up to 70%), to make them more suitable for use as a modelling mass.
Almonds are grown principally in California and Spain with small quantities coming from other countries around the Mediterranean. Mediterranean almonds are generally considered to be superior to Californian, because they are cultivated in a more natural environment with more favourable climatic conditions.
