APA pectin range is extracted from specifically selected apple pomace from the group's apple juice companies. Apple pectin naturally contain some natural flavonoids, hemicelluloses, starch and xylan and are therefore of light brown colour.
Apple pectins have a neutral, even fruity taste and enhance existing natural flavours of an application. Apple pectins produce smooth gels of a more viscous character than comparable citrus pectins, therefore they are better suited for applications such as jams and spreads.
