FunCakes Yellow Pectin is a gelling agent for making jams, jellies, preserves, fruit pastes and pie fillings. Pectin is naturally found in plants and, in combination with sufficient sugar and acid, has a binding effect after heating. All fruits contain pectin, only some types contain more pectin than others. When preparing a firm jam or jelly you need to add extra pectine, as fruits don’t contain enough pectin naturally to bind sufficiently. You can do this with the FunCakes Yellow Pectin.
Gelling agent: E440, stabiliser: E337, E452, dextrose.
May contain traces of: egg, soy, milk, sesame.
Store in a cool, dry place, 10-20°C.
