    What Is Pectin?

    Pectin is a powder mainly extracted from citrus fruits that acts as a gelling or thickening agent in food products. It is a good source of soluble dietary fiber that, when digested by humans, slows glucose absorption and reduces blood cholesterol levels. Pectin is found in large concentrates in apples, oranges, pears, guavas, and citrus fruits.

    Uses of Pectin

    Pectin is the main gelling agent in jams, jellies, and marmalades, which would otherwise have the consistency of juice. Pectin is also used as a stabilizer and thickening agent in other food items, such as fruit juice, milk drinks, pudding, soups, yogurt, and milk-based sauces. Because of its moisture-retention qualities, it is often used as a fat substitute in sweets and baked goods, and it also acts as a preservative when used with sugar in jams and jellies.
