Congratulations Irena, your Marsh Mallow is our Spotting of the Day:"You might be indulging in marshmallows today, but did you know these treats owe their name to a mallow plant that grows in marshes? The Marsh Mallow (Althaea officinalis) is our Spotting of the Day! This plant found in Europe, Asia and North Africa has long been used in herbal medicine and as a food source. The plant was later used to make confectionery by adding egg white and sugar. The modern version of marshmallows no longer contain Althaea officinalis".Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter:https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/9...
