Pectin in Healthcare Products
Healthcare companies are looking for ingredients that deliver excellent functionality and natural appeal.
Pectin is a fibre found naturally in plants, especially fruits such as apples, oranges, lemons and limes. As well as being widely used as a food ingredient, pectin has a number of applications in the healthcare sector, where it acts as a gelling and film-forming agent. It also delivers superior water-binding capabilities and offers resistance to acids.
All these properties make pectin a useful ingredient for a range of pharmaceuticals, medical nutrition products and medical devices. It is suitable for use in formulations and products intended for both internal consumption and external application.
As well as its superior functionality, pectin is also a popular component for healthcare products because it is sourced from nature, is completely safe and is fully biodegradable (and therefore environmentally friendly).
