  • Man alive is my brain spinning. I have LM Pectin. I want to stop using store bought stuff to make my jam. My dilemma is how must do I use? For 100g of fruit, how much LM Pectin to make a regular spreadable jam. My last batch cam out sliceable! Help.

    • The usage ratio for LM Pectin is 0.10% – 0.70% by weight. So that would be 1-7g per 1000g.

    I need pectin without all of the additives. I see you use dextrose. Do you know what the source of the dextrose is? I can’t do corn or any grain.

    • Pectin is always standardized. We do not carry any non-standardized pectin. And yes it’s from corn.

    Hi, do you have a pectin that works with dairy products? Something comparable to Pectin X58

    • Yes, we do. We have the perfect ingredient to be used with dairy, amidated LM Pectin. It’s a type of pectin that only requires a small amount of calcium to gel. This seems to be very similar to what pectin X58 is.
