Please share your favorite place to get food grade glycerin for making fondant?

post #1 of 8

I have limited access to such products...I wonder if getting it online would be more economical. I can find those tiny bottles for roughly 4 dollars at Micheal's but they don;t last very long. In the past, some people recommended ordering it from the pharmacy but I have checked with my local pharmacies and have not found any help there, they say they can't get it or uninterested to try. If you have had luck getting glycerin, would you please share your idea? I'm just a hobby baker, so we aren't talking large bakery, high volume quantities.Thank you.

Hi there! I get mine from Lorann Oils, as I usually order vanilla bean paste every couple months, and its awesome! The glycerine from them isnt TOO pricey.... Heres a link!

I have also seen it in a local healthy food store (hippie food store) in gallon jugs!

 

Hope that helps!

Give this place a go, not sure if they deliver to your location but give them a ring and they'll help you out:

Thanks for the recommendation! I think I will order from Lorann..seems to be reasonable, especially since I need to place a flavorings order from them already. Thank you for the reply and recommendation!

This looks great..thank you..but I'm in the states and I'm thinking it might not be economical to buy overseas. It looks like a great place for supplies though!

I was, unbelievably, able to find it at my pharmacy and I'm in a tiny little podunk town! The pharmacist looked bemused and wondered what I wanted it for!!
