Pomona's Pectin


Useful for thickening non-dairy yogurt.

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 calcium, which is unlike the other type of pectin which is activated by sugar.

  • 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.


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

Okay, I guess ...

I bought this product for the home-made hemp milk yogurt.

The hemp-milk yogurt was okay, but it was not nearly as good as the soy yogurt from the recipe in the package which does not require the pectin.

The pectin recipe also requires much more time and effort.

If the taste had been good, I would have stayed with the hemp-milk yogurt and spend more time and effort.

But the soy milk yogurt recipe tastes so much better that I do not plan to use the pectin again.

I hope this helps.

This is fantastic stuff!! I have never made yogurt before and now, thanks to Cultures for Health I am making my own vegan yogurt every week!! Just add a little honey and vanilla when it is done and it turns out beautiful every time!!!!

Vegan Yogurt

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.

works well for thickening yogurt

I use this to thicken my Bulgarian culture raw goat milk yogurt. Their is an added step in the process, but it turns out consistenly well.

Works great!

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.
