Pectin is a group of substances which forms gels when dissolved in water under suitable conditions. It is derived from protopectin found in the middle lamellae of plant cells. Protopectin is insoluble, but is converted to soluble pectin as fruit ripens or is heated in an acid medium. Pectin is a negatively charged colloid in an acid fruit substrate. As sugar is added to this colloid, the pectin–water equilibrium breaks down, and a fibrous network capable of supporting liquids is established. The fiber network forms the gel necessary for jams, jellies, and preserves.
