Difference between Jam Jelly Marmalade and Preserves

I know this is different than what I always post, but since I have to take care of my health and I have this blog here, I figure I'll share what I learn :)

I don't know about you, but I never knew the difference between jam, jelly, marmalade and preserves. Until now that I NEED to know since I have IBS and have to be careful with what I eat. So just in case you were wondering too, here is a little guide in plain English :)

Croissants, Jelly, Breakfast, Puff Paste, Puff Pastry

Jelly is made from fruit juice and sugar

Jam is made by crushing fruit with sugar

Marmalade is usually made of citrus fruits and contains the peel

Preserves is made with fruit but contains larger chucks of it

I hope this helps and please know that all of them have sugar so eat it in small amounts specially if you have IBS.
