Foodvit Pectin Powder 100g
Pectin is a structural heteropolysaccharide contained in the primary cell walls of terrestrial plants. It is produced commercially as a white to light brown powder, mainly extracted from citrus fruits, and is used in food as a gelling agent, particularly in jams and jellies. It is also used in fillings, sweets, as a stabilizer in fruit juices and milk drinks, and as a source of dietary fibre
- High Source of Fibre: Pectin fibre is more than just a regulator — it’s a benefit-rich fibre that’s water-soluble and helps lower cholesterol and increases digestive health. As a soluble fibre, pectin works by binding to fatty substances in the digestive tract, including cholesterol and toxins, and promotes their elimination.
- Lowers Cholesterol: Pectin is a water-soluble fibre that can bind cholesterol in the gut, thereby preventing its absorption into the bloodstream.
- Controls Diarrhoea: Pectin increases viscosity and volume of stool; therefore, it’s commonly used for natural relief of constipation and Diarrhoea.
Aids Weight Loss: Pectin is a water-soluble complex carbohydrate that serves as a fat-burning food. Because the consistency is gum-like or gel-like, when you eat fresh fruits or veggies with pectin, the cells absorb it instead of the fat. Pectin also helps you feel full longer; that satiated feeling means you’ll chow down less throughout the day.
