Where Pectin
Comes From

Hero Background
Where pectin comes from

Most pectin is made from the apple pomace and citrus peel left over after fruit juice production. These raw materials would otherwise go to waste, so pectin manufacturing is a great example of a circular economy in action in the food supply chain.

Pectin was first commercialised in Germany in the early 20th century. Today, it is produced to high safety and quality standards all over the world, in the USA, Europe, Latin America and China.
