Airport & Supplements?
Flying out on Wednesday this week and want to take my Protein powders from home also creatine.
Is thier any hassles at airports with all this? The protein will be put into just plastic bags and the creatine is in powder form.
No want to get out thier and fork out for protein.. Were self catering so i thought i would pack these and save some ££££.
Its going as cargo luggage so its checked in

You'll be fine. They can tell the difference between supplements and illegal drugs, but you might consider labeling the bags to save them time if they look.

I have label'd them as best i can. Thier just put into zip lock bags. I think they will go through no problems. Just wanted to see how everyone else got on 👍 I also have a vitamins tub i emptied and put into a bag so a big bag a pills lol a will see how i get on 👍 Thanks guys

On second thought, they may not have a sense of humor... I'm also the guy whom has to think over
"Private or Public Search"...
I just say,... "I'm thinking", and "Which costs more?"
I'm not kidding. Ask my poor wife.

They can tell the difference for the most part, but TSA tends to not be on the upper range of intelligence so labeling and using chocolate or a color other than white will help your cause. I brought a baggy of banana flavor and after the x-ray, pulled me aside for the additional check and had to have 2 TSA members over opening and smelling it to see what it was. I was laughing the whole time and offered to pour it into a cup and drink it, but then they decided it was approved and put it back.

If you can find a way to fit the original packaging and keep it sealed, that woul be ideal, a friend of mine says that on an international flight, they let him bring sealed glutamine powder but confiscated it on the way back because it was an open container of white powder. That said, I recently brought some supplements from USA to Europe and back, what I did was just measure out how much I would actually use on vacation so I didn't have a huge amount and put that into bags with a note taped to the outside explaining what it is, what it's used for, and how much I use and no one questioned it.

I fly out today so i will update when i land 👍 I think it should be fine.. I cant see them thinking a powdered bag that smells like chocolate brownie is gonna be dodgy loll ive got creatine etc. Ive just put it all into bags. We did speak to an online flight company and they says it shouldn't be a problem 👍 I have everything here so i thought no point forking out over thier for protein etc when i already have it here. Will see how it goes

I had washing powder in Ny luggage, and Norwegian customs totally f##ked my luggage.
They broke the TSA locks, I could barely shut it.
It's ridiculous, never had issues anywhere.

Had an officer test my carbohydrate powder and protein powder on the side of the road with his little science kit when I got pulled over one time. Not kidding, the protein was brown and obviously smelled like chocolate. I was pissed.

The checked-in baggage searches at the airport are of the four-legged variety. As long as your powder in your check-in doesn't smell like drugs or explosives, you'll be fine. Keeping a beige or white powder in your carry-on in an unlabeled ziploc bag though, that's just begging to get secondary'd!

No issues in 4 flights for me, one trip was Mexico City, and their TSA-equivalent agents shook the canisters of pre-workout to make sure it wasn’t liquid. No complaints about several bottles of capsule supps. Toothpaste was confiscated , though.

But just in case you decide to chose not to chance it. We sell travel size tubs and sample packs of PEScience products which would cover especially your most common staples needed for a trip like Select and Prolific.
