Citric Acid = Pectin?

 

Question:

I know that pectin is forbiddend. Is citric acid the same thing as pectin?

 

Elaine writes:

Citric acid and pectin are two distincty different things. One of our Mothers received a confusing answer from a company and put it on the list and some became confused. Citric acid is found in many foods and products and it is not harmful in natural amounts such as found in fruit. But pectin is what the mainstream have termed as a "soluble" carbohydrate which really means that bacteria readily attack and ferment it into the acids such as acetic, lactic and others. Not citric acid.
