Pectins are versatile biopolymers found in the cell walls of vascular plants. Manufactured from citrus peels, VIVAPHARM® Pectins work as a natural thickener, stabilizer, and gelling agent.

JRS PHARMA offers a full range of high-quality citrus Pectins, including pure Pectin for pharmaceutical applications, as well as standardized and buffered Pectins for nutraceutical applications.

VIVAPHARM ® Pectins are produced in JRS Silvateam Ingredients’ state-of-the-art facility in Rende, Italy. Thanks to this location in southern Italy,
are made from locally sourced fresh citrus peels, with additional dried peels imported to ensure supply security.

JRS Silvateam Ingredients is a joint venture between Italian Silvateam Spa and German JRS group, two international family-owned companies.
