Does anyone know of a local source for purchasing sodium citrate? I have not been able to locate it using Google or searching these forums.
Also used in pickling, I think. Used to be called sour salt, but in recent years that term seems to refer to citric acid which I believe isn't the same thing. I've been meaning to try sodium citrate for a smooth melting cheese blend too, just haven't found it locally even at restaurant supply places, and never ordered it online.
FYI, I never did find a local supplier and ended up buying it on Amazon. Awesome! But, I'd love to find recipe ideas other than cheese sauce. If it really is a miraculous emulsifier, I wonder if it would work for mayonnaises or hollandaise.
