Pectina amidata

Conventional low methoxyl pectin

Suitable for organic jams and bakery jams

Conventional pectin (LMC) is a low methoxyl pectin that contains less than 50% of the carboxylic acid units esterified and forms gels only with polyvalent ions (Ca++, Mg++). LMC pectin permits to produce brittle thermally irreversible gels.

LMC pectins are typically standardised according to the gel strength, setting temperature and calcium reactivity.

The table below shows a list of the key LMC pectins, produced by Silvateam.
