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.
