Where to buy Sucro?

I am looking to buy Sucro (It seems the most common brand is Texturas) for use in a cocktail next week. Is there somewhere in the city that carries different molecular gastronomy ingredients that may carry it? If not, is there a website that carries it?

      Thanks so much- I have checked a ton of websites and most of them are telling me that texturas sucro is out of stock. I am waiting to hear back from gourmet food ideas actually.

      Is there an alternative to sucro that works just as well? We are trying to make tabasco air, so I was thinking maybe soy lecithin?

        wait, you are trying to make pepper spray?

        The one thing you might consider is calling up http://www.kalustyans.com/ and asking them. While they certainly don't stock it, they have been able to procure pretty bizarre stuff for me in the past.

          Haha yes it is technically a peppery foam- probably not so good for self-defense.

          Great call with Kalustyans. I decided to go with lecithin instead so hopefully that will do the trick. Thanks for all the suggestions!

            I would imagine lecithin will work just fine!

            Start with a ratio of .6% and go from there!
