I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for sourcing moderate amounts of Food Grade Hydrated Lime in Canada?
I found a local Ethnic Food store that carried tiny couple tablespoon bags of the stuff, and I can get Ms. Wages Pickling Lime for like $20 for some fraction of a pound. But I cannot find any stores or online businesses that ship outside of America with reasonable shipping prices.
The best I have seen so far is Bulk foods.com, from which I can get 20 lbs for about $120 CAD. Perhaps not an atrocious price, but even if we assume I don't get hit by boarder taxes it is too much for my comfort. I am ideally looking for something close to half that or at least 3/4s.
I am willing to buy a lifetimes supply of the stuff, but want it for a couple bucks a pound.
