The percentage of Pectine is 0,5-1 % of the weight of most fruits and the methyl groups of the pectine are located on the carbon ring which makes up the majority of the weight of the pectine. Some comments may be held for manual review. the two facts are unrelated, so I believe compounding them is a bit silly. Poitin/poteen is, as the name suggests, is distilled in a pot-still.

The percentage of Pectine is 0,5-1 % of the weight of most fruits and the methyl groups of the pectine are located on the carbon ring which makes up the majority of the weight of the pectine. To roughly estimate the strength of 'real' poteen, shake the bottle - if the liquid produces a foamy head which lingers then it is over 50% alcohol by volume. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:29, 22 February 2013 (UTC).

I have never studied IPA in any way so pardon me if I'm way off the mark with those but I was directed here by someone who reads IPA who had got their pronunciation (which I thought sounded wrong) from here.
