What pectin to buy?
Pectin is a popular ingredient in the most delicious desserts. Marmalade, jams, jelly, marshmallows, preserves, sauces, fillings in cakes and pastries are obtained from it.
But, in order to choose the appropriate option, you need to understand the types of pectin. This substance is found in fruits, berries, many vegetables and other plant foods. Its appearance depends on the origin of pectin. There are citrus, apple and pectin NH.
How is pectin different?
Citrus and apple can gel at low ph levels (high acidity), high amounts of sugar, and high temperatures. The most dense and stable gel will give apple pectin, but will color it yellow. Such pectin goes into marmalade, thick jelly, marshmallows and other desserts that require stability. If you want a more delicate texture - you need to buy citrus pectin.
NH pectin is a mixture of natural pectin and additives. It is thermoreversible, does not lose gelling properties. Works without a lot of sugar and in a less acidic environment. NH pectin is ideal for fillings in cakes and pastries. Even after defrosting, the product will remain stable.
Of course, we recommend buying pectin of any kind in the INVENT online store.
