In all likelihood, marzipan originated in Italy. There is no clear indication when it was introduced to Denmark, but it is thought that it was brought across the Alps some 500 years ago by tradesmen. In any case, marzipan was already highly popular by the beginning of the 16th century.
Both Odense Almond Paste and Odense Marzipan have the same ingredients; almonds, sugar and glucose. Marzipan is milled to a smoother consistency, and has more sugar. Because of this, Marzipan is more pliable. This allows for easier rolling out and modeling. Almond Paste's higher almond content gives it a stronger flavor. It is used as an ingredient in baked goods.
