    Crestchem’s Pectin is naturally derived from citrus peel. We can supply a wide range of High Methoxyl (HM) Pectin and Low Methoxyl (LM) Pectin.

    Used in a wide range of products – fruit-based foods, jellies, marmalades, jams, confectionery, and yoghurts, Pectin is also suitable for use in certain savoury applications such as sauces, gravies, and dressings.

    Pectin thickens to achieve the desired texture or set of the end product. In certain applications, adding pectin will improves flavour release.

    It can also be used as a stabiliser in fruit flavoured dairy-based drinks, and is widely used in the dessert industry as a topping or glaze.

    Please contact us for more information on the specific grades of pectin we offer.
