Hey team, loads of you here are frequent flyers I’m sure for business etc. There seems to be stricter laws coming into place for entry into the USA.
From the 30th, it seems powders of more than 12oz (<350g or 1300kcal of Huel) will be scrutinised more.
Powders won’t necessarily be confiscated if you have more than 12 ounces. You’ll be requested to remove the powder for additional screening, similar to what you’re supposed to do with liquids. If officers can’t figure out what you’re carrying, you may be asked to discard the powder or check the item. You can avoid this situation entirely by placing powders in your checked luggage.
Quite a few articles about this online but can’t find the official directive from TSA apart from this which isn’t very specific.
Either way, thought you might like to know. For EU flights I believe this is still fine, I’ve taken open pouches of Huel in carry-on plenty of times.
