Description

Details

Pomona's Universal Pectin can be used to thicken jams, jellies, and even yogurt. Pomona's Universal Pectin is a low methoxyl-type pectin derived from citrus peels and pulp. Its jelling power is activated by the calcium naturally present in most fruits, rather than by sugar content.

  • Each box includes pectin and a separate packet of monocalcium phosphate to add to jellies or yogurt varieties that are naturally low in calcium.
  • One box makes approximately 20 cups of jam
  • Can also be used as a gelatin substitute for puddings and glazes.

 

Ingredients

  • Low methoxyl citrus pectin, monocalcium phosphate (packed separately, for making calcium water).
  • No sugar, gluten, or preservatives. Vegan product.

 

Storage Information

Store in a cool dry place.

    I used this in my yogurt recipe and it worked great. I have made two batches of yogurt - one with the pectin, one without the pectin, in future I will always use pectin.

  2. Worked very well with almond yogurt.

    Made my first batch of almond yogurt. The pectin gave it a jello like consistency.

    I started canning about the time I became aware of the mirad'un'natural things that are in so much of our foods. This new awareness caused me some discomfort when canning jellies and jams, because of the pectin I was forced to use. Then I found Pomona's, and I have never looked back. I love it, and it works great!

    Wanting to save a bit of money, I used a regular pectin on my first batch of yogurt. It didn't thicken at all. I decided to get the Pomona's Pectin, and my yogurt has turned out perfectly every batch. I will use this from now on!

    This is also a wonderful product. I have used other pectins and they didn't work very well at all, I had to add arrowroot powder also. Great product and very pleased with both of the products.

    I used this to make my first homemade batch of preserves. This product was recommended in Nourishing Traditions, so I bought it.
    My preserves came out great and my family loves it. Just bought more recently.

    Initially I only bought the culture to make began yogurt but when it didn't thicken I emailed Culture for Health and was told I also needed this Pomona Universal Pectin. Well I attempted again and it worked out perfectly. What a treat to be able to make my own vegan yogurt. Thank goodness for Cultures for Health and their terrific staff that are always there when your need assistance.

    I used this product twice to make almond yogurt following the recipe from the website of cultures for health. The first time I halved everything since I was using only 2 cups of almond milk. It worked great. The second time I used the same proportions on the website but the yogurt came out way too thick. could not use it. I will have to play with the amount of pectin next time to get a creamy consistency.

  12. to pectin or not to pectin..that is the question

    I've made two batches of vegan yogurt following the direction on the Cultures for Health site, one with almond milk, the other with coconut milk. I would say that the pectin works well, but almost too well. My yogurt came out with a more gelatin consistency rather than creamy smooth. I'm going to try it with half the amount and see if it yields a better texture. But it definitely does the job.

  13. Needs better instructions.

    This product was not created for yogurt, and the instructions are not easy to follow. When you do follow them, the results are less than satisfactory. I ended up with solid yogurt. Certainly not appetizing!

    Response from CFH: Thickening yogurt is one use suggested by the manufacturer. The calcium content of your milk will affect the set of yogurt thickened with Pomona's Pectin. Please contact our helpful support team at [email protected] for assistance.
