Turrones (Brittle)

Here are some turrones I got during a trip to Madrid in 2016.

The turron de guirlache contains Almendras con cáscara, azúcar, miel y obleas (fécula de patata y aceite de girasol).

The turron de alicante contains almendra, miel, azucar, claro de huevo, oblea.

I'm not quite understanding something. Something is missing from the translation or context.

How does the presence of one extra ingredient (egg whites) transform it into a new turron (turron de alicante)?

What is supposed to be the difference between the turron de guirlache and turron de alicante?

Guirlache means noughat, right?
