Pectin Rapid Set
Uses: There are mainly two types of Pectin, rapid-set and slow-set high methoxyl pectins. The difference is in the Degree of Esterification (DE). The rapid-set ones have a high DE and are used for products where you want chunks of fruit suspended in a gel, as in marmalades. Slower-set ones have a slightly lower DE and are good for clear jellies.

Traditionally, pectin was primarily used in the production of jams and fruit jellies - industrially as well as domestically and in low as well as high sugar products. It secures the desired textures, limits the creation of water/juice on top of the surface as well as an even distribution of fruit in the product. Pectin is a key stabilizer in many food products:

Fruit applications - Marmalade, Jams, jellies, and desserts; Bakery fillings and toppings - Fruit preparations for dairy applications; Dairy applications - Acidified milk and protein drinks - Yoghurts (thickening); Confectionery - Fruit jellies - Neutral jellies; Beverages; Nutritional and Health Products; Pharmaceutical and Medical Applications.
