Abstract: The investigation entitled “Extraction of Pectin from Acid Lime Peel” was carried out at Post-harvest and Analytical laboratory, Department of Fruit Science, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola during 2020-21. The main objective of conducting this research was to determine the total pectin obtained from different maturity stages of acid lime Cv. PDKV Lime fruits. Pectin was extracted from dried peel powder of immature, mature and ripe fruit peels using hydrochloric acid (HCl 0.01 N) as reagent medium in distilled water, where, pH was maintained at 1.5. Optimum extraction conditions with extraction time of 80 minutes and an extraction temperature of 50 °C was employed. Pectin recovery of 35.57 percent of pectin was pertained from immature acid lime fruit peels, followed by, 27.05 percent in mature fruit peels and recovery percentage of 21.93 was obtained from ripe fruit peels attributing to the afore mentioned extraction conditions. The preliminary results inferred towards immature acid lime fruit peels attaining as a rich source of pectin in terms of recovery.
