Sponsored Post Ingredient Trend: Flexible and Tolerable H&F Pectin for Vegan Applications – vegconomist


Pectin was first discovered in fruit over 200 years ago. However, the possibility of using it in food production was only recognized at the beginning of the 20th century. Pectin is a natural fiber found in apples along with citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and limes. This makes it a purely herbal product and perfectly suited for vegan applications – it is used for texturing and as a gelling agent, thickening agent or stabilizer.

In many applications, pectin can complement or even replace other texturizing ingredients such as gelatine in fruit gums, marshmallows and panna cotta. As a complementary ingredient, pectin with starch can effectively combine the technological advantages of both stabilizers and generate additional benefits in bakeable fruit fillings or gummy confectionery. In fruit yoghurt preparations, this positive effect can also be achieved with pectin in combination with locust bean gum.

H&F apple and citrus pectins offer functional and sensory benefits in various products:

• Milk alternatives
• Plant-based yoghurt alternatives to eat and drink
• Vegan gummy bears
• Jams and fruit spreads
• Bakable fruit preparations for baked goods
• Vegan delicatessen products and delicatessen sauces
