Where to find Molecular Gastronomy Chemicals in YYC
Ive tried to a couple different places but cant find items like Transglutamines, Sodium Alginate. Any tips?
You can find some items such as agar agar and soy lecithin at co-op or community natural foods. For Transglutamines and alginate I have found that amazon.ca is a good resource (believe it or not) You can also look up JB Prince. They will ship to Canada with a minimum that is fairly easy to hit. My last suggestion is emailing a chef around Calgary and asking them to order some for you. Depending on who it is you might get lucky.
Ive seen a few things at Cookbook Co, but not the full selection. Same as localchef mentioned re community natural foods. For home use, i order from http://dcduby.com/ out of Vancouver. No customs, no garbage to deal with. They cost a bit more than shipping from the states, but their stuff is good.
For large volume, ordering from the US is best.
