Training event 1: Introduction to industrial pectin production & Regulatory affairs

Training event 1: Introduction to industrial pectin production & Regulatory affairs
© CP Kelco

The first Training Event was hosted by CP Kelco in Lille Skensved, Denmark from 16 to 18 November 2011, and from 6 to 8 October 2014.

Training programme

The training included both scientific and non-scientific aspects related to the industrial production of pectin.

Scientific training: The training combined theoretical and practical modules. The theoretical part included a general presentation of pectin covering origin, production, classification, gelling mechanisms and examples of commercial pectin (topic of WP1). Also, various aspects of jam production were covered including production technology, recipe generation and factors that affect the quality of a jam. During practicals, training participants could experience the (i) effect of choice of fruit (calcium/pH condition); (ii) reactivity of pectin on the jam texture; (iii) the effect of the filling temperature (management of softness and pre-gelation); and (iv) the effect of calcium sources.

Complementary skills training: The training included a description of the regulatory affairs related to the industrial production of pectin and a presentation of the quality controls that need to be implemented to ensure a safe production of food ingredients.

They talk about the Event


" After this training, I could easily see the logical link between research, development and pectin production. It gave me the background knowledge to understand the biochemistry involved in pectin applications like low sugar jams and acidified milk drinks. " Fanny Buffetto, INRA.
