So, what is fruit pectín?

Fruit pectin is a natural substance found in fruits that is commonly used as a gelling agent in food production. It is primarily derived from citrus fruits like oranges and lemons, but can also be extracted from apples, berries, and other fruits. Pectin is a complex carbohydrate that plays a crucial role in the texture and consistency of jams, jellies, and fruit preserves. Aside from its culinary uses, fruit pectin has been studied for potential health benefits such as improved digestion and cholesterol levels. It’s a versatile ingredient that can enhance both the taste and nutritional value of many foods.
