A marshmallow is a sugar-based confectionery that in its modern form typically consists of sugar, egg whites, water and gelatine whipped to a squishy consistency, moulded into small cylindrical pieces, and coated with corn starch. This is the modern version of a medicinal confection made from Althaea officinalis sap, the marshmallow plant.
This sweet was invented around 2000 BC in ancient Egypt but the world only met this delicacy in 1800, when the French docuries discovered a recipe and replaced the sap of the mallow with gelatine.
Nowadays is a popular and traditional candy in the United States, where marshmallows are eaten roasted, prepared over a fire or other source of flames.
