So, what is pektyna?

Pektyna is a natural, plant-based ingredient that is commonly used in the food industry as a gelling agent, thickener, and stabilizer. Derived from pectin, a carbohydrate found in the cell walls of fruits and vegetables, pektyna helps to improve the texture, consistency, and overall quality of many foods and beverages. It is known for its ability to create a smooth and uniform texture, as well as its low-calorie content and high fiber content. Pektyna is often used in jams, jellies, desserts, and dairy products, and is favored by health-conscious consumers looking for natural ingredients in their food.
