Briefly introduce the role of manufacturer citrus pectin for blueberry jam

The full name of small molecule pectin is modified citrus pectin (MCP), or low molecular citrus pectin (LCP). It is a polysaccharide compound with galactose as the main ingredient extracted from the peel and pulp of citrus, lemon, orange, and grapefruit. MCP has many pharmacological effects such as anti-tumor, anti-aging, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, lowering blood sugar, lowering blood fat, anti-coagulation and improving immune function.

Esterification degree of manufacture citrus pectin for blueberry jam

Pectin is a type of polygalacturonic acid polysaccharide, whose galacturonic acid residues are often esterify with some groups. Such as methoxy groups and amide groups. People also call the degree of esterification is methoxylation. Esterification degree, also known as methoxylation, refers to the sum of the proportion of methylesterification, acetylation and amidation in pectin. According to the difference in the degree of pectin esterification and the type of esterification, pectin can be divided into three categories: high-ester pectin (DE>50%), low-ester pectin (DE<50%), amidated pectin (amide Degree>25%). The degree of esterification of pectin is usually different due to the diversity of raw materials and the different extraction processes.

The DE of pectin is also a very important parameter. In addition, the degree of esterification also affects the release level of drugs. For example, the degree of esterification of MCP with anticancer activity is generally believe to be less than 10%.
