Certified organic product need only to be made from 95% organic ingredients. Therefore, organic jams and jellies may not use organic pectin. I find solace in the fact that all pectin comes from fruit and there are no genetically modified fruits and the pesticides used should be pulverated into oblivion once the final product (pectin) is done.
The fruit is non GMO, but they add dextrose and citric acid which are often derived from GMO crops.

While there is no one currently making certified organic pectin, several wholesalers in China profess to do so. I would be skeptical of that claim.

I have found, however, that Pamona makes the closest thing to Organic here in the US. Most pectins that you buy have other additives, such as sugars etc. Pamona does not. It is different in that you can even make just one or two jars of a jelly or jam if you wish, and you can use no sugar at all if you want. All in all, it makes for a healthier jam.

Be sure and not use the recipes from other pectins when using Pamona, because the makeup of the pectin is different. Use the guide that comes with the pectin. Also, their on line help is great. They have lots of tips and recipes and they actually answer their emails!

You can find the pectin for sale in most natural foods type stores.

Instead of pectin if you drown chia seeds in your fruit juice or nectar you get the ssme texture completely organic inexpensive and high in fiber. Been makin homemade jams for a few months now and its a great pectin substitute

several years have passed and there are now, unfortunately, GMO apples that have been approved by the biased, greedy and heavily lobbied FDA...

First, pectin can be made from corn and that usually means genetically modified corn unless the product is certified organic.

Even ďall naturalĒ fruit versions are typically GMO based as they contain dextrose and citric acid, both corn derived products. For example, take a look at the ingredients of Sure-Jell, a popular brand used by home canners: Sure-Jell Ingredients: Dextrose, citric acid, fruit pectin.

While the fruit pectin itself isnít a problem, the GMO dextrose and citric acid most definitely is"

I guess i just need to try to find 'the most organic' fruit pectin I can because I am a vegetarian and won't use gelatin and I just do not have the time...or energy...to make my own fruit pectin

I'm wondering if there is such a thing as organic fruit pectin? Since pectin is derived from fruit, is there a brand that derives it from primarily organic fruit? I'm planning to open an organic bakery, and I make a mean black forest cake, but the filling calls for fruit pectin, and I'm wondering if it's possible to buy this organic?
Depending on how you make any fillings (i.e. if any cooking is involved) just incorporate apples into the recipe. I peel them, use small amounts of the diced fruit, and use the skins kind of like bay leaves (I take them out at the end). Apples are naturally really high in pectin. You can use any kind of apples, but mild apples are best if you don't want them to overpower the other fruits. I also find that if you substitute honey for sugar, it aids in geling any jams or fillings. Organic, powdered pectin isn't common and I wouldn't trust it if I found it. Any powdered pectin is something that was created in some food lab, whether they used organic fruits or not, and, if you're trying to eat organically, then you need to stay far away from anything pre-packaged. Real food grows!
