  • I tried to find out the difference between amidated and non-amidated pectin powder and which one better to use for fruit gelée but cannot submit must questions to Ask The Chef.

    • Amidated means the pectin can gel with a lower amounts of calcium. As low as 10mg of calcium can be used to gel 1 gram of pectin. Fruit gelee that contains sugar should use rapid set hm pectin. If this is a sugar free gelee the best thing to use would be any type of LM pectin along with calcium added for gelling.
