Pectin is a natural component of the cell wall and the middle lamella of all higher land plants. As it contains beside galacturonic acid also neutral sugars like arabinose and galactose it is a heteropolysaccharide. The linear galacturonan main chain is interrupted by rhamnose. The galacturonic acid molecules can be esterified with methanol resulting in pectins with different degrees of esterification.
