SUBSTANCE: method of pectin extraction with high degree of polymerisation includes addition of oxalic acid and/or water-soluble oxalate in water suspension which contains peel pectin. Oxalic acid and/or water-soluble oxalate is added until mixture with pH in the range between 3.0 and 3.6 is obtained. The total molarity of oxalate must be more than the total molarity of calcium (II) in peel. Then mixture is heated to temperature from 50 to 80°C for the time, sufficient for pectin extraction. Then extracted pectin is separated from mixture by sedimentation.
