Pectin effectiveness post expiry

Hey, I'm about to make some tart cherry preserves. The (no sugar needed) pectin I have readily available is "best by" 2009. Ingredients on the box: dextrose, fruit pectin, locust bean gum, xanthan gum. Does pectin break down or will this be OK? I ask because I have found conflicting information online. It's trivial for me to get some new pectin, which I will probably do, but I was just wondering.
