Marshmallow Cake without Baking - Tips and Tricks
For confectionery, try using agar-agar, not gelatin. Agar-agar is obtained from algae; gelatin - from the cartilage of animals. Agar-agar does not have the characteristic smell inherent in gelatin, so confectionery products based on it are more palatable. The smell of gelatin is not felt when using it in combination with products of animal origin.
When using gelatin for pastries, choose plates. Such gelatin is convenient to use: the plate has a standard weight of 5 g, it dissolves within one minute, without gluing, like powdered gelatin. In addition, in the production process, plate gelatin undergoes additional purification steps, and therefore has absolutely no characteristic protein smell.
Agar-agar is convenient in that the gelling of liquids begins already at 50 ° C. Creams and desserts based on agar withstand a higher temperature in the room, and gelatin jelly begins to melt at a lower temperature.
