Pectins

NATURALLY FROM H&F

Pectin is a natural component of the cell walls and middle lamella of all higher land plants. It is a heteropolysaccharide, as it also contains neutral sugars like arabinose and galactose in addition to galacturonic acid. The linear galacturonic acid main chain is interrupted by rhamnose molecules. The galacturonic acid molecules can be esterified using methanol, resulting in pectins with different degrees of esterification. The purity requirements for pectin are set out in international specifications. H&F pectins are certified as halal and kosher.

OUR PRODUCT RANGE HAS BEEN CREATED IN RESPONSE TO THE DEMANDS OF THE MARKET

H&F pectins are used in the food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries and deliver reliable results. At H&F, the wide range of high-quality pectins are derived primarily from apple pomace, citrus peel and beet chips. The specialised range of Classic pectins includes high, medium and low ester varieties. The perfect product for every application: the H&F range is divided into Classic pectins, Combi pectins, Amid pectins and Instant pectins.

What are pectins?

Pectins were discovered in fruit over 200 years ago. However, the possibilities for using them in food production weren’t recognised until the beginning of the 20th century.

Thanks to its gelling, thickening and stabilising
properties, pectin has gained in importance, particularly in the food industry, but also in the cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries.

Today, highly-specialised pectins are derived primarily from apples and citrus fruits which have been juiced straight after picking and then carefully dried. In order to ensure the highest possible quality and purity, the production process used to get from the fruit to the pectin requires a great deal of experience and careful handling.

There are no pectin applications that cannot be covered using a pectin supplied by H&F.
