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.
