Default freezing breaks down pectins?

I was told a few days ago that freezing before pressing can help break down the pectins in fuit.

I will soon be picking blackberries and muscadines and wanted to know how well, if at all, this freezing thing will work

Freezing will break down the cell walls, I don't know about pectins, I would use a teaspoon of Pectic enzyme for that.
