French term or phrase: blanc monté en neige
This is in a text about egg products
sarah
English translation:beaten/whipped egg white
Explanation:

"whipped/beaten egg whites" are whipped/beaten but not necessarily stiffly. They are whipped/beaten until white and fluffy but may in fact be a little creamy looking.

"stiffly beaten egg white" is where they have been beaten/whipped so that you can turn the bowl upside down and the white should not fall out. (If it does, they are just whipped/beaten).
“stiffly beaten/whipped egg white” would be fine for “un blanc monté en neige (très) ferme)”.

The difference being "stiffly".
