Fruit Fresh - available in Canada?

I have been on a semi-serious search for this magical product you call "Fruit Fresh" for some time now, but to no avail. It is entirely possible that I am just blind, or perhaps looking in the wrong place (though it would seem logical for it to be shelved along with canning supplies, non?). Do you all happen to know if it's available in Canada? If not, why not? (Is it some sort of illicit substance used in the manufacture or pharmaceuticals or something?)

Why do you like it so much? Is it more effective than lemon juice and/or ascorbic acid? (I found the latter for the first time today, but am really interested in FF.)

It is manufactured by Bernardin in Canada so it sure should be available. This online ordering link takes (linked below with picture of it) you do Gold's Kitchen for ordering. Don't know where the Canadian groceries would place it but down here it is usually found in the Spices section as it isn't used just for canning. It's primary use is for fresh food preparation.

It's not too magical, a combination of Dextrose, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Citric Acid that just happens to be offered in a convenient shaker container, making it quick and easy.
I can find it in with the spices, salts aisle too, used in fresh foods preparations like fruit salad or fruit trays for buffets and not just a canning product...

You might try emailing Bernardin and asking where you can find it locally.

I have looked in a lot of places, but never in the spices section. Onward and upward!
