    This is an excellent question. I searched, but could not find it for sale anywhere except in industrial quantities. Now, I'd like to know the answer too!

    It's quite possible this is an economics question -- if there's little demand for it in small quantities, there's little profit to be made in either bottling it or in stocking it in stores.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is an economics question, not a cooking one.

  • @rumtscho Do you have information to demonstrate that this is an issue of economics and not food safety- for instance?
