Marzipan Fruit for decoration
Decorative Marzipan Fruit is ideal for decorating baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, muffins, etc. But, take your dessert to the next level! In addition, you can choose between two flavors – orange and lemon.
Marzipan originally came from the Middle East, and back then, it had a rosewater or orange blossom flavor. As early as 965, this specialty was one of the caliphs’ tables delights. Moreover, marzipan became known in Europe through the Arab invasion of Spain and Portugal.
At that time, only kings and princes could eat this specialty. When pharmacists started producing and selling the almond paste, as they had the spice monopoly, confectionery manufacturers soon began manufacturing marzipan. However, it remained a luxury item until the 19th century, when people started to produce sugar from sugar beet, cheaper than cane sugar, making marzipan more widely available.
Marzipan does not contain harmful trans fats or, more precisely, trans fatty acids (TFA)! Furthermore, it is alcohol-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian, and vegan.
The brand in its natural form behind decorative marzipan fruit
The company’s founder Otto Lohner laid the foundation stone for today’s Olo Marzipan O. Lohner AG in Ostermundigen in 1933. The protected “olo” logo, well known in the trade, is derived from the first letters of his first name and surname.
Today, the factory has around 60 employees, with an output of some 2,000 tonnes of products per year. One of their best-known products is the classic orange marzipan carrot, which you can find on almost every carrot cake.
The Olo Marzipan continues to be a family business, now run by the third generation.
