LMA PECTIN is low methyl amidated pectins and they are less calcium sensitive and require generally less calcium for optimal gelling. Even the fruit containing calcium or water containing calcium can be sufficient for optimal gelling conditions. LMA pectins are to a large extent very tolerant towards the calcium concentration for building up an optimal gel network.
These pectins result in very smooth and elastic gel structures. Additional calcium normally is only needed if soluble solid content is lower than 40%. LMA are the only pectins which produce thermo reversible gels.
Andre Pectin is a supplier and producer of apple and fruit juice concentrates. They have a sustainable source of raw material, like lemon peels or apple pomace, which lends them a competitive edge in producing apple pectin. Andre Pectin also produces citrus pectin.
