Green and orange vegan dietary supplements in person's hand


Formulate exceptional plant-based supplements, sourced from citrus 


Pectin is a renowned product that consumers have been adding to their homemade jams and jellies for decades. Dietary supplement manufacturers have also been using this plant-based ingredient as an alternative to gelatin for vegan supplement gummies and to optimize enteric coatings for delayed-release capsules. Naturally derived from citrus peels, our pectin is easy to use, versatile and proven effective.

Pectin enables a broad range of delicious supplement gummies that boast high heat stability for easy transport and consumption in warm climates, eliminating the likelihood of gummies sticking or melting together in the bottle. Its uniform gelling properties provides a clean-cut and shiny appearance, and it provides the consumer with a superior taste and texture profile to ensure a positive experience with every gummy.

Used as a gelling agent, Pectin facilitates the production of vegetarian hard capsules and supports a tailored release profile, thereby protecting nutrients from stomach acid.

Pectin exceeds the expectations of consumers and supplement manufacturers by:

  • Enabling non-GMO, vegan, vegetarian, Halal, Kosher and ‘clean label’ claims on packaging
  • Adapting to many gummy formulations that allow for different colors and flavors
  • Compatibility with existing gelatin operations, requiring little to no capital investment to implement
  • Enabling efficient processing and outstanding quality
  • Tolerating wide parameters in processes and recipes
  • Accelerating and simplifying the development cycle

High-Quality Supplements, Increased Sustainability

Our Pectin demonstrates a circular economy, presenting manufacturers with a simple way to utilize earth’s natural products to deliver high-quality supplements. The peels from citrus fruits, like lemons and oranges, are used to create sustainable ingredients that naturally support supplement formulations. These parts of the fruit would otherwise be wasted or used in industries that may be less sustainable.  

In addition to reducing environmental waste, Pectin supports at least four of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Good health and well-being, responsible consumption and production, climate action and life on land.
