What is Pectin?

Pectin is a natural fibre found in apples and citrus fruits, including oranges, lemons and limes. It is used to make a wide range of food and beverage products, where it offers natural gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties. Pectin is the perfect ingredient for creating consumer-friendly products with natural appeal. It is completely safe, highly functional, very versatile and extremely cost-effective. It’s easy to see why so many food & beverage companies – and consumers – put their trust in pectin.
