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 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!
