In a nutshell, the Australian Government are placing restrictions on inorganic powders taken onto planes as of June 30.
Just like liquids, gels and aerosols, any powders you’re carrying will need to be presented separately at security screening.
This applies to flights out of Australia and Australian domestic passengers departing from international terminals.
Basically, restrictions apply to inorganic powders, see the table below for clarification on what is and isn’t ‘organic’.

Inorganic powders include salt, talcum powders and cleaning products for example.
Lucky for us, protein powder is considered an organic powder and is therefore not restricted on flights, yay!
From your staple proteins such as WPI, Earth Protein, and Protein Matrix+ to Dessert Sample Pack and Quick Protein Oats; there’s a Sample Packs to suit your needs. Capsules are also a great option as they take up very little space and involve no mess.
Another tip we have is to clearly label any powders you do take on board. Whether that be cutting out and sticking on product labels to ziplock bags or simply writing details on. However, the easiest solution is to take travel-sized packs that clearly state the contents of the powder.
If you need to take larger bags of proteins or aminos on your trip, just include them in your checked-in luggage instead. It’s a safer option than losing a big bag of quality Aussie made supps, right?
