HM pectins E440 are composed of more than 50% of esterified galacturonic acid units. We offer a broad range of different DE from 50% to 78%. HM pectins are standardised either to specific setting temperatures, viscosities, calcium reactivity, protein stabilising capacity or specific buffer capacity. More information about these pectin types can also be found in our detailed application brochures.
LM pectins E440 are composed of less than 50% of esterified galacturonic acid units. DE typically ranges from 30% to 48%. We offer a broad range of LM pectins with different calcium sensitivities. Gel formation of LM pectin occurs in the presence of calcium ions or similar cations within a wide range of pH values at soluble solids levels below 50%. Lower DE generally increases the calcium reactivity and less cations are needed for optimal gel formation.
