The use of citric acid as an extractant could boost the industrial recovery of pectin from waste cocoa husks that are generated during cocoa production, say researchers. In this research, different extraction conditions were applied to investigate the effect of temperature, extraction time and substrate–extractant ratio on pectin extraction from cocoa husks.
