Producing Pectin from fruit wastes

Pectin is a polysaccharide material that can be extracted from fruit pulp, and pods of citrus such as lemon, lime, oranges and grapes. In view of its high gel forming ability, pectin is widely used in the food industry, especially in the preparation of jams, jellies, fruit juices, preserved canned fruits, and in confectionaries. Medically, pectin is useful in the treatment of diarrhea.
