So they invented the idea of mixing the mucilage of marshmallow The marshmallows were made by mixing the mucilage with sugar syrup, egg white and vanilla seeds.
Today's marshmallows, which originate from gelatin
In order to save costs and to facilitate mass production, the mucilage from Marshmallow has been replaced by gelatine, which as one of the main ingredients in marshmallows. Gelatine is used for fresh and safe bovine bones from cattle hides. After undergoing a series of processes After a series of processes, the gelatine is decomposed using catalysts such as alkalis, enzymes and acids. The peptide molecules are decomposed to form polymerised gelatine. The gelatine is then boiled at a specific temperature and After boiling at a specific temperature, the gelatine is concentrated and cooled to make gelatine strips. The gelatine is then boiled at a specific temperature, concentrated and cooled to make gelatine strips and finally turned into gelatine powder. To make marshmallows gelatine is melted in hot water. Sugar, starch, flavourings and colours are then added. This is then stirred vigorously with machinery A thick syrup is formed. It is then formed into different shapes in moulds.
