Why You’ll Love It

Pomona's Universal Pectin makes thick jam and jelly with rich, full flavor undiluted by large amounts of added sugar. Ordinary fruit pectins require your jam or jelly to be 55-85% sugar to set firmly. Pomona's Universal is a low methoxyl type pectin extracted from citrus peel. Its jelling power is activated by calcium (included), not by sugar content. Now you're free to make cooked jam & jelly and freezer jam the way you like it - sweetened to your taste with honey, sugar, artificial sweetener, fruit juice concentrate or any other sweetener.

Jello vegan

I thought I would never have jello again. This makes jello easy. Plus you determine what is in it. I like to take cranberry juice and use coconut sugar.

Great for Vegan Puddings

I honestly use this not as intended, I make large batches of vegan puddings by boiling extracts and nut milks then add this pectin with swerve sweetener and almond butters. Blend it up, let it set and blend again for a nice pudding that also makes a good ice-cream in a ice-cream machine.

Requires very little sugar

Used this to make jam for the first time with my daughter and absolutely loved this pectin. It had been so long since the last time I tried to make jam. I was pleasantly surprised to that this pectin required so little sugar. You can even use agave nectar or honey instead! Product goes a long way. Definitely going to use this again with my next batch with my daughter.

Great jam making product

Like another reviewer wrote, this is an outstanding pectin that allows me to use far less sugar when I'm making my jams. I specialize in strawberry and lemon jam, and I've noticed they come out with much more of a fruit flavor when I uses this pectin, as I don't have to worry about adding additional sugar to bring out the flavor. Thrive also offers this at a great price, so I buy two at a time to ensure that I never run out.

Easy to use!

My mother in law got me into making jams, jellies, and preserves this past year and I have really enjoyed making them. I found this pectin while I was scrolling through the many products offered here on Thrive and came upon this pectin. I have never seen it anywhere an noticed it takes less sugar than other pectins and was also cheaper, so I orders some up.
When it came I was excited to use it, and found later that even better, it's super easy to use. I used way less sugar than with other pectin products and it was easier to use making it more desirable to use. I am going to stock up on this for next "jam season" when we can get yummy, fresh berries straight from the bush.

- Sasha D.

Works great! Very easy to use.

I love this pectin because it enables you to use as little sugar as needed. I used about a fourth of what I used to with other pectin products. Also, works great for making vegan cheese!
