Pectin is a natural dietary fibre, which is found in apples and citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons and limes. As a universally applicable gelling agent, thickener and stabiliser, pectin is an indispensable component of many different products. In the food industry, pectin is used in the production of jams, sweets, baked goods and dairy products. In the non-food segment, pectin has become noticeably more important in recent years, for example in cosmetics and medical products. Herbstreith & Fox has specialised in functional pectins that are oriented towards specific applications.
