Pectin is found in terrestrial plants' primary and middle lamella as well as in cell walls. It is a heteropoly saccharide that serves as a structural acid. Galacturonic acid, a sugar acid produced from galactose, is the main chemical component of pectin. Commercial pectin is a white or light brown powder made from citrus fruits that are used as a dietary fiber source.

Its other uses are as a chemical stabilizer in beverages like milk drinks and fruit juices, along with its use as a consumable gelling agent, particularly in jellies and jams, dessert fillings, medicines, and sweets. Additionally, pectin boosts the gel retaining the strength of low-calorie jams, and decreases syneresis in marmalades and jams.

Pectin is diluted to a suitable concentration with a small amount of citric acid and sugar to regulate pH. In confectionery jellies, pectin imparts a good flavor release, a clean bite, and a good gel structure. Pectin is also employed to improve the mouthfeel and pulp stability in baked goods and other purposes. Pectin levels used as food additives typically range from 0.5 to 1.0%, which is roughly equivalent to the pectin content in fresh fruit.

Gelatin substitutes are more popular among American consumers when baking at home, which is predicted to increase sales during the forecast period. Furthermore, agar-agar can also be employed as the gelling agent in the culinary method known as gel clarification, which is used to clear sauces, stocks, and other liquids.
