gelling substance, thickening agent
Explanation:
For jelly, only those fruits may successfully be used that contain a sufficient amount of pectin (the chief gelling substance) and acid.

Pectins are white amorphous substances that yield a viscous solution with water; when combined in the proper proportions with sugar and acids, they form a gelatinous substance that is the thickening agent in fruit jellies.
