Not that i know of. It breaks down or 'eats' pectin, a naturally occuring product in all fruit that leads to haze. You use pectic enzyme to help you end up with a clearer cider.

Also, remember that if you are trying to ferment with natural yeasts on apples, it won't necessarily work since apples don't contain enough of the right kind of yeast to actually ferment the juice. You will need a commercial strain in addition to the wild yeast to actually ferment the cider.
