What is Pectin?

Pectin is a generic term for a natural highly diverse group of polysaccharides. Pectin is found in the cell walls of plants, notably abundant in fruit. It binds plant cells together while controlling water in the plant. Pectin has been used since the early 1800s and commercially produced since the early 1900s. Pectin used in food applications are derived from an aqueous extraction, typically using citrus peel and apple pomace, followed by a selective precipitation process using salts or alcohol.   The precipitated pectin is then dried, milled and standardized. It is then classified into one of 3 types; High methoxyl pectin (HM), low methoxyl pectin (LM) and low methoxyl amidated pectin (LMA).  Each of these types have different characteristics yielding a wide range of beneficial uses within the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.


Pectin can be used to form a gel and add texture. It can add viscosity and mouthfeel to beverages and stabilize their ingredients. It can even be used as a soluble fiber. Pectin can be used in jams, jellies, marmalades, gummy candies, yoghurt, syrup, fruit preparations, dairy drinks, beverages, bread, frozen desserts and many other applications.
