Marmalade came to us from the Ancient times, and the word itself can mean a lot of things, but generally it is agreed that “marmalade” refers to a fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits boiled with sugar and water. In other countries it may have different taste, shape and contents, but in Russia the most famous form of marmalade was “lemon slices”, which were very popular in the Soviet times. Nowadays we have a lot of other marmalade, of course, but “Lemon Slices” are as popular as ever. Still, you can choose from a variety of other forms and flavors, many of which were never produced in USSR and appeared only in modern Russia.
Historically Russian people were eating marmalade while drinking tea. And this tradition is still strong, although a lot of people can eat it without tea as well, just as a sweet dessert. The same we can say about marshmallow, which usually is consumed with tea, but some people can also eat it as a sweet dessert, and that is why the both products are in the same section. Still, marmalade for many is a more popular product and that is why we have a great selection of Russian marmalade. Some of the marmalade we have is “modern”, i.e. it was made utilizing the modern recipes and technology, and some of it is “traditional”, such as the products of Belevsk Marshmallow Factory. Which claim that they produce their marmalade according to a traditional recipe from natural ingredients without adding artificial flavorings, coloring agents, preservatives and gelatin. Thus, it is completely natural product rich in pectin, which has many positive effects on the body: it reduces the level of "bad" cholesterol, reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, removes toxic substances from the body and stimulates the normalization of metabolism. True or not, we don’t know, but the one we know for sure, - there is no health risks from consuming marmalade, so you can eat it as much as you want. Buy Russian marmalade for your tea parties or just as a sweet dessert consumption.
