    Default Can I take my own whey protein into Australia

    I was hoping an Australian citizen could probably provide me with the correct info but any will be appreciated.
    We are planning on visiting my sister in Brisbane, Australia later in the year. I know Aus is very sticky about what enters its borders.
    Now you might say; "Why not just buy your sups in Aus?" The problem I have with this is that in South Africa I have been using Pro Nutrition Whey Protein. They do not add excessive flavouring or colouring to their products and unlike products like USN, I cannot swallow. They are too sweet and tend to make me nauseous. What Whey Products are available in Aus, does anyone have an idea?

    I usually travel with my Supplements and realize that my visit to Australia will present many challenges. We going to be spending 4 weeks stomping all over Downunder and know that if you visiting another man's house, you abide by his rules. We dont have issues with border control. We just want to be prepared and if we going to be spending 17hrs in transit, would like to at least have our supplements.

    Thanks muscle freaks and muscle bunnies.

    Have never had a problem bringing an unopened container through any airport.

    I have taken supps back to Oz many times and never had an issue. I always take sealed containers. I got asked about the source of the milk in my protein once, I told them it was from Wisconsin and they let me through
