Pectin

Pectin comes from various fruit peels including apple and orange pomace mixtures. This naturally occurring substance is found in plant cell walls. Pectin typically serves as a thickening agent in food products ranging from yoghurt and ketchup to fruit jellies. Additionally, medicinal industries use it as a healing agent and for diarrhoea relief as well as in anti-ulcer cases. The cosmetic industry employs pectin to naturally bind compounds.

Pet Food Fiber Source

Dried apple pomace does not have a lot of nutritional value; however, it is a good source of soluble fibre. It's often used in pet foods such as dog kibble and canned products to increase the dietary fibre content, and it's a main ingredient in apple horse treats.

Dried Pomace Preserves

Loaves and muffins contain dried pomace at times. Dehydrated apple pomace mixtures - with the seeds removed - are delicious additions to baked goods and add nutritional fibre content to these treats.

Ciderkin

Apple pomace is the main ingredient in a weak cider beverage called ciderkin. This drink is made by allowing pomace to steep in water.
