For the preparation of pectin from papaya pulp 0.2 per cent HC1 and 0.75 per cent tartaric acid have been found to be highly suitable. Decomposition of pectin is less at pH 3.5 than at pH 2.5 during concentration of the dilute extract. Loss in jelly grade of the pectin during concentration is more with tartaric acid (30.7 per cent) than with HC1 (2.7 per cent). Liquid pectin prepared using tartaric acid is highly stable at pH 3.5 as well as pH 2.5, when stored for 6 months at 25-30ºC, while that prepared using HC1 is stable at pH 3.5 only. Addition of substances like sucrose, ortho- or hexameta-phosphates to the liquid does not check the degradation of pectin.
