I've bought it a couple of places already mentioned, plus my local cake supply store carries it. But, it's all the same small jar. I recently wrote to Nicholas Lodge begging him to carry larger jars. I got no response, but really...none was needed. If more of us wrote asking for this, maybe he would look into it. CMC, which is all Tylose is, is a common thickener in the food industry. Someone who had the buying power of national/international sales could probably buy it in bulk and repackage it in large economy sizes. I really wish someone would. I won't make gumpaste using anything else, and those stingy little jars just don't last very long!

In Australia I buy it in 150gms, 300gm or 500gm jars!!!

maybe you could buy online internationally!!!

Beryls sells it too, and if I´m not mistaken they also sell it in bigger containers.

Woo-HOO! Beryls has it in up to one-pound bags. I never shop there. Thanks for the lead!

Now, the big question....

A while back, I got a lead on some of this stuff through an industrial supplier. Not a company that specializes in cake decorating. They sell thickeners for all sorts of applications. It sorta worked, but it was apparent that it was a lower quality than what we get as "Tylose." It wasn't quite right. Has anyody here actually used Beryl's bulk CMC powder? I'd hate to spring for it only to find it's the same stuff I got through the other source.

I have used Beryl´s CMC and I like it very much! I found it to work the same as any other gum but not as pricey. HTH. Oh, and Beryl´s, excellent customer service!
