Where to buy Glucose in Montreal
I need to buy liquid glucose and I'd love it if I didn't have to go to Ares or France-Decor (both are quite far away from where I live). Pharmacies don't carry it.
Does anyone know where I could find it?

That won't work as sucrose is a molecule that's composed by combining a glucose and a fructose molecule (they are mirror images of each other) - but it's not a mixture at all. Sucrose can be broken down into a mixture of glucose and fructose by "inverting" it - this is done by boiling a solution with acid (such as vinegar or lemon juice). The combination is more soluble in water than the sucrose was - and this is exploited in many recipes.
If you're using a European recipe that calls for glucose (which is readily available there, but not here) you can use light corn syrup instead. Corn syrup is mostly glucose and not available in Europe so you wouldn't find it mentioned in a European cookbook.
