Main applications of pectin

The right solution for your business

Pectin is traditionally used as a gelling agent in a wide range of fruit-based products, such as jams, marmalades, jellies, fruit preparations for yogurts and desserts and fruit filling for bakery products.

Pectin can be used to improve the mouth-feel and the pulp stability in juice based drinks and as a stabilizer in acidic protein beverages.

Pectin also reduces syneresis in jams and marmalades and increases the gel strength of low-calorie jams.

Pectin is used in confectionery jellies to give a good gel structure and a clean bite.

The typical dosage of pectin in food applications is between 0.5 - 1.0%.

Besides its use in the food industry, pectin is also used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.
