What is Pectin?

Pectin is a form of polysaccharide usually found in the call walls of plants. Pectin was first discovered and isolated in the 19th centrury around the time of the industrial revolution. Producers of fruit prevserves would obtain apple pomace which can be cooked to extract a thick pectin solution; they would then add this to their preserves to add stability. Today, most commercially produced pectin is made from citrus fruit peel, then dried and ground to a fine powder.
