I'm going to Europe, and will be bringing along my vitamins & supplements. I'd like to carry them on, but wonder if there will be an issue in Western or Eastern Europe? Some are in powder form (like vit C powder), and I'd like to bring it in a plastic bag. I will write 'vit C' on the bag, but wonder if this will be okay with customs? Will they have to test it, or take it away if unsure?
To be safe, should I bring the large container it came in- so it's clearly labeled? I just don't want to be without my vitamins, if they don't pass customs in plastic baggies! I could pack them in my suitcase, but what if my suitcase gets lost.....
I am in London and have travelled a bit around the rest of Europe with various odd looking capsules- often not in their original packaging. Only been asked about them once when were in a metal pot and basically the lady was fine when I just said herbal medicine.
I think sniffer dogs etc are good and distinguishing naughty powders from innocent.
I think you will be absolutely fine.
Have a marvellous trip. If it is soon the weather is amazing we are having an early summer 27c yesterday!
