Jams, Jellies and Marmalades
End users demand high standards for their jams, marmalades and jellies. The fruit processing industry achieves the desired properties by using quality pectins: smooth gel, low synaeresis, glossy surfaces, good spreadability, even distribution of fruit, clean cut and a natural, fruit-specific flavour. Precise adjustment of the individual recipe parameters and the choice of the right H&F pectin enables the required product properties to be achieved. Choosing the right pectin allows products with reproducible properties to be manufactured.
For a sugar content of over 60% with a pH value of around 3.0, as is typical for jams, high ester H&F Classic pectins or Combi pectins at a dosage of approx. 0.2 to 0.4% are ideal, as they produce the optimal conditions for gelling.
For products with reduced sugar content, low ester H&F Classic pectins or Amid pectins should be used in combination with calcium salt.
