Nougat and marzipan pralines with white, milk and dark chocolate.
In addition to the world-famous Niederegger marzipan, the production of the finest nougat was also one of the confectionery arts of Johann Georg Niederegger. To this day, Niederegger nougat is characterized by its particularly tender-melting note and intense taste.
The aromatic hazelnuts used to make our nougat creations are imported to Germany as whole nuts, freshly roasted here and processed into hazelnut pulp. We achieve the fine melt by fine-rolling the marrow and subsequent conching in specialized manufacturing processes.

Marzipan and wine
First an unusual combination, you'll think. Wine and marzipan have a lot in common. Remember the centuries-old tradition that unites wine and marzipan and the complexity of its production. The quality of both products depends largely on the quality of the raw materials. As soon as you have experienced this taste experience, you will recognize that the mild acidity of the wine harmonizes wonderfully with the sweetness of our marzipan. This is pleasure for all senses. The warm colours of wine & marzipan, the fine smell of grapes & almonds and as a highlight the harmonious combination of flavours.
The history of marzipan
Marzipan, this delightful treasure, originally comes from the Orient. Where almonds and sugar have their home, our marzipan was invented. The Persian doctor Rhazes, who lived from 850 to 923, wrote a book in which he promoted the mixture of almonds and sugar as a remedy.

Differences in marzipan quality
"Take almonds, sugar and rose water ..." is the simple, classic recipe for marzipan. Decisive for the unique quality of the Niederegger products is, in addition to the quality of the raw materials and the traditional roasting process, the right mix of almonds and sugar.
Basically, the higher the almond content, the higher the quality of the marzipan. So the raw mass must consist of at least 65% almonds and must contain no more than 35% sugar. Further sugar may be added in the further processing, which is basically dispensed with by Niederegger.
The aromatic almonds
The almond tree with its Latin name Prunus dulcis is one of the rose plants and is therefore closely related to cherry, peach, apricot and rose. For around 4000 years, the frost-sensitive tree has been cultivated. The almonds thrive particularly well in a warm climate and are grown, for example, in southern Spain in the region around Alicante.
Aromatic almonds from southern regions are the most important raw material for the high quality Niederegger marzipan. Between January and February is the time of the almond blossom. The wide groves show up in their brilliant white and pink splendor. The managing proprietors of the Niederegger family business, the Strait family, are personally convinced by the abundance of flowers these days.
From March, nothing is to be seen of the blossoms of almond trees. The harvest takes place from beginning to middle of September. The edible almond kernel is surrounded by a protective, hard shell. From this, the almonds are harvested in the harvest areas, selected and packaged for transport.
In Lübeck, once again, the quality of each individual delivery is checked by an independent laboratory before the almonds are released for production.
The original recipe
Decisive for the unique quality of the Niederegger products are, in addition to the quality of the raw materials, the correct mixing ratio of the ingredients as well as the traditional roasting process. Everything else is a closely guarded family secret that has been handed down from generation to generation for more than 200 years.
Niederegger attaches great importance to traditional craftsmanship. The almonds are blanched in a hot water bath to quickly and thoroughly rid them of their brown skin. Subsequently, a machine and additionally a manual sorting done, so that in the end only the very best almonds are processed. In large drums they are washed again before they are mixed with the sugar. Rolls grind the almonds and the sugar, taking care that the structure of the almond is preserved and still on the tongue is noticeable.
Then the roasting of the raw mass begins under the eyes of an experienced roasting master. For this purpose, the mass is placed in rotating vessels and heated evenly over an open flame. The result is fine roasted aromas and the almonds and sugar combine to form an aromatic savory raw material. After cooling off with cold air and a rest phase, the Niederegger secret is added. Only now is the marzipan ready and can be processed into one of more than 300 different products.
