Lubeca Lübecker Marzipan
The World’s Finest Marzipan
Lubeca has been producing marzipan since 1904. The company continues to use traditional methods of production and is recognized by bakers, pastry chefs and chocolatiers as one of the leading producers of high quality almond paste marzipan.
The more sugar in the marzipan, the lighter the color, the firmer the constancy and the longer the shelf life. Almonds from California are 100 % sweet whilst almonds from the Mediterranean region naturally have about 2% bitter almonds, giving marzipan it’s unique bitter sweet flavor. This can be strengthened further with the addition of bitter almonds.
The flavor in Lubeca’s marzipan is further enhanced with roasting in an open copper vessel. This produces Lubeca’s unmistakable delicious taste.
*Lübecker Marzipan is a proteced geographical indication from the EU, so that finished products made from it can be declared as ingredient with i.e. “Made of Lübecker Marzipan PGI”
