Gum Arabic in Vancouver?

  • 5

I;ve spent far too long trying to search this out. Has anyone successfully found this in Vancouver or by Canadian mail order?

So far I've struck out at Famous Foods, one of the Whole Foods, and most of the big chains... If anyone has actually found this, that would be a great help

Thanks,
Norm

  1. I believe I've gotten some from Galloway's.

    1. I'd give Gourmet Warehouse a call too. I've gotten other thickeners and such chemicals there before (sodium alginate!).

      1. re: peter.v

        Thanks guys! Gourmet Warehouse was my first try and I got the last container.

        Cheers!

      2. I believe I've gotten some from Choices as well, if I wasn't mistaken

        1. I am not sure if this is a good suggestion, but art stores will always have gum arabic in stock; whether or not this is safe to eat is not something i could answer but if you're desperate you can always find out!
