    Default Reduced Sugar pectin?



    Can anyone tell me what the chemical difference is between "regular"
    (yellow box) and "less sugar" (pink box) pectin (SureJel brand)? I have
    read the ingredients and they don't seem that different (yellow has
    citric acid, pink has fumaric acid and sodium citrate.

    It's a different kind of pectin - how's that? :-) It's called low
    methoxyl pectin. There are a boatload of different pectin types
    available to commercial producers, each with different applications and
    characteristics. Look up a pectin producer in Oakhurst, CA -- National
    Pectin?? I think they have descriptions.

    There you go!! Pacific Pectin. My brother lives in Oakhurst, so I
    hoped that if I had the name wrong you'd still be able to find them. :-)

    Pomona's Pectin is the best in the world for those wanting to make a low- or no-sugar jam or jelly. Honestly!
