“Pectin, a plant-based product, has been garnering significant traction as a viable ingredient in the F&B industry, owing to its natural and vegan nature. In addition to special property of binding with the intestinal wall and protecting it from opportunistic microbial invasion during stress, pectin offers a number of health benefits.

Pectin as a Solution to Various Complex Health Problems

Pectin is a solution to various health issues that were previously unable to cure. For example, niacin is an organic chemical taken by various consumers to supplement their diet with vitamin B3 and various important nutrients. But, it is also known to cause skin flushing in the face and upper body parts, which previously was treated as an allergy.

However, after deep research, it turns out that pectin helps in curing skin flushing caused by niacin, and skin flushing is not an allergy but a side effect of consuming more niacin. Similarly, pectin is known to treat ulcerated mouth and throat by simply applying it in the affected areas. Moreover, the replacement of chemicals with plant-based products in pharmaceuticals will continue to favor the growth of the pectin market.

Using pectin to make paper and plastic substitute is the most important and major step that manufacturers have taken towards protecting the earth.

Pectin, owing to its gelling property, can make proper paper plates and its plant-derived nature makes it safe for the environment as well.
