Extraction and Characterization of Pectin From Selected Fruit Peel Waste

  title={Extraction and Characterization of Pectin From Selected Fruit Peel Waste},
  author={Ermias Girma},
Pectin can be used as food and pharmatecitical additives. This study investigated the effect of temperature, time and pH on the yield and physicochemical characteristics of pectin extracted from banana and mango peels. Pectin was extracted using acid extraction method. The experimental design was performed using Central Composite Design of Response Surface Methodology for parametric optimization. The optimum temperature, time and pH for the extraction of pectin for both peels were determined to… Expand
