The seeding material used used to "seed" crystals--that is, to initiate their growth in the sugar suspension.
As for what that particular suspension (jalea) happens to be, I've come up with several possibilities. Do any of these fit your larger context?
In the manufacture of marshmallow meringues and grained marshmallow, crystalization of the sucrose is deliberately induced by altering the ratio of sugar to glucose in the formulation and sugar crystal seeding techniques to give the characteristic texture of this aerated product type.
The degree of aeration and setting time is dependent on the type and grade of gelatin used together with its concentration. For manufacturing extruded products such as extruded marshmallows, high bloom and/or high viscosity gelatins should be used so the product sets quickly giving shape retention, allowing rapid cutting for continuous production. http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.gelatin.com/confect...
(2) From my own experience with sugars: when you put a string in a hypersaturated sugar syrup, sugar crystals will form around the string. The result is called rock candy, and is used by bars preparing some kinds of alcoholic beverages
