So, what is amidated pectin?

Amidated pectin is a food ingredient derived from the cell walls of plants, primarily citrus fruits. It is a modified form of pectin, a soluble fiber that acts as a thickener in food and beverage products. The amidation process involves the addition of an amine group to the pectin molecule, which increases its stability and enhances its gelling properties. Amidated pectin is often used as a gelling agent and stabilizer in dairy products, fruit juices, and confectionery items. It can also be found in dietary supplements and pharmaceutical products due to its ability to promote digestive health and lower cholesterol levels.
