Description

Low Methoxyl Pectin (e440i) is extracted from the peels of citrus fruit. Pectin consists of a complex set of polysaccharides that are present in most primary cell walls of plants. The main use for pectin is as a gelling agent, thickening agent and stabilizer in food. The classical application is giving the jelly-like consistency to jams or marmalades, which would otherwise be sweet juices. Pectin can also be used to stabilize acidic protein drinks, such as drinking yogurt, and as a fat substitute in baked goods.

Low Methoxyl Pectin works best at pH from 2.8 to 6.5. It sets at 50 to 70C (depending upon calcium present: about 30-50 mg of calcium per gram of Pectin). LM Pectin is synergistic with Locust Bean Gum. It is typically used in low calorie jellies with lower sugar content

Just want to say thank you for a very speedy delivery. I placed my order for Popping Candy last week and it arrived in Switzerland this morning just in time for me to make my 'Exploding' Chocolate Dessert this weekend. Once again many thanks.
