I have a recipe for pumpernickel bread which calls for vital wheat gluten and for caramel powder colour. Does anybody know where these supplies might be purchased?
Just occurred to me that you could also try Anatol Spices - they have an incredible variety of flavourings, colourings, etc.

Bob's Red Mill makes vital wheat gluten. You can find their products in the natural foods section at most Provigo/Loblaws.
Thanks to all. I found the "Red Mill" product at Papillon in Pointe Claire at $8.99 for 500g. They also have a bulk product called "gluten flour" at $3.99/lb which I was assured people use as a substitute. I shall try the cheap stuff - does anyone know if there is a real difference between the two products? The Red Mill is labeled at 70-80% protein but I could get no such info on the "gluten flour".
Still need to follow up your suggestions regarding the caramel coloring.
