Description
 
Marzipan has its origins in the Orient, where the fine almond-sugar delicacy was served at the caliph's table to crown the meal.
The sweet specialities were introduced to Europe during the Crusades via the trading centre of Venice, making its way to Spain, Portugal and also Lübeck. At the beginning of its history, marzipan was produced by chemists and considered a healing remedy well into the 18th century.

In the 14th century, marzipan became a dessert on the noblest dinner tables and it served as a luxury gift for the empire’s highest dignitaries. Following the discovery of the New World and the worldwide cultivation of sugar cane, Europe benefited from easier access to sugar than ever before. As a result, confectioners took over the production of marzipan and magically transformed the once plain marzipan loaves into works of art by creating hand-modelled figurines.

More industrialised methods of processing brought marzipan production into full bloom. However, it was only companies like Niederegger who consistently supplied high-quality products that were able to survive in the market over the long run.
Marzipan became a specialty of the Baltic Sea region of Germany. In particular, the city of Lübeck has a proud tradition of marzipan manufacture (Lübecker Marzipan). The city's manufacturers like Niederegger still guarantee their marzipan to contain two thirds almonds by weight, which results in a juicy, bright yellow product of highest quality.
German marzipan is made by grinding whole almonds with sugar and partially drying the paste.

The secret of the traditional recipe for Niederegger marzipan has to do with the exact ratio of almonds to sugar and with an ingredient that is similar to rosewater.

Still today, the production is personally supervised by master confectioners. Almonds are the basic ingredient of marzipan, and Niederegger pays very careful attention when selecting the varieties. By personally sourcing almonds in Spain, Italy and other Mediterranean countries, only first-class goods make their way to Lübeck.

After all, Niederegger produces only a consistent, top quality that surpasses even the quality requirements for fine-grade “Lübecker Edelmarzipan“.  Niederegger is the only marzipan using 100% quality marzipan paste.
