Technical data sheet
Samples are digested in a buffered solution with Viscozyme and pectinase. Extracts are run through the Galacuronic assay kit to quantify the pectin by the amount of galacturonic acid produced from the digestion.
Fruit and fruit preps, fruit fibers, purified pectins
Samples with high amounts of inclusions in the Pectin
Limit of quantitation
In-House method w/ K-URONIC 04/16, Megazyme
Sample size requirements
Inclusions in the pectin are not included in the calculation. Pectin is quantified as galacturonic acid equivalents.
