      No, can't find it - tha'ts why I was asking if anybody knows where can I get it in Calgary? and I was told that bread improver will do the same job as well.

        I read that as well, where do you get bread improver? I just wondered if you did find any since it has been a few days. I may order from the states. Let me know if you come across any please and thankyou

          I checked with a bakery today and they said they don't use bread improver so I believe can't find this one too here. Bread improver makes the bread or brioche softer. Do you know how much it cost to order from the states ? Thanks !

              You'd probably be better incorporating a small amount of cake margarine into your cakes - check the products on the supermarket shelf - they usually contain Polyglcerol Esters & Mono & Di-Glycerides.

              The difference between these & the powdered product in your link kritafo is that the emulsifiers (prehydrated & in the right crystalline form) in the margarine are going to be much more active & efficient in doing their job compared to the powdered product.
