Pectin - Superior gelling property of low-methoxyl pectin and its ability to gel with less or no sugar are expected to drive the market growth.

Pectin is a polysaccharide (starch) extracted from primary cell wall of plants, usually from fibrous cells of citrus peels or apple by either acid or alkaline hydrolysis. There are two basic types of pectin: high-methoxyl pectin and low-methoxyl pectin. Low-methoxyl pectin is widely used in the food industry as a thickening agent for jams and jellies. Low-methoxyl pectin is applicable in dessert fillings; sweets; and as a thickener and stabilizer in fruit juices, drinking yogurt, milk drinks, hair tonics, body lotions, shampoos, and conditioners. In cosmetics, low-methoxyl pectin is used as a structure provider in pastes, ointments, oils, and creams. In medicine, pectin is used to prevent disorders, such as constipation and diarrhea, mouth & throat sores, diabetes, and colon cancer.
