We know when it comes to your health it's important to ensure that the products you are taking are safe for you and align with your dietary requirements and choices. We have put together a list of our most asked questions to help inform you.

1. What Amazonia products can I take if I am pregnant?
We have a dedicated Raw Pregnancy Protein for those trying, expecting or feeding, our Raw Nutrients Vitamin C is now also pregnancy safe.
We recommend that you avoid the below list of products if you're pregnant:
- Raw Protein Slim & Tone (all flavours)
- Raw Nutrients Greens
- Raw Probiotics Biotic Ferment
- Raw Nutrients Women's Multi
- RawFIT range (all products)
2. Are your collagen products plant-based?
No, unfortunately no collagen supplements can be derived from plants only. Therefore, our source is marine based, which we believe to be the most sustainable option.
3. Are your products certified Halal?
4. Are your products gluten free?
Yes, all Amazonia products are gluten free.
5. Can I cook with protein powder?
When protein is heated it denatures (the structure of the proteins begins to breakdown into amino acids), a process that occurs in the body after protein is ingested anyway. Heating our protein powders will not compromise the nutritional quality of the product. In our experience we find plant-based proteins are more friendly to cook with.
6. How much caffeine is in the Acai Energy and On-The-Go products?
Our Acai Energy contains only 6.6mg of caffeine for every 100g, compared to an average cup of coffee this is approximately 5% **according to FSANZ.
7. Is your packaging recyclable?
Unfortunately they aren't recyclable as there is a lining in the inside that is necessary for it to be food grade and to protect the nutritional components of the powders. The paper tubes however are made from 100% recycled material and are BPA free. Our canisters can also be re-used or up-cycled. We are currently working hard to develop sustainable packaging solutions for the near future.
8. Where does Amazonia source its ingredients from?
Amazonia sources its ingredients locally and from around the world, depending on where the ingredient is natively grown. Our Raw Proteins are made from Organic Golden Pea Protein grown in Alberta, Canada, and Organic Brown Rice Protein grown in Northern China. These regions are where the highest quality, nutrient-rich form of these ingredients can be found. To ensure our customers receive nothing but the best, we do not accept any ingredients that do not meet our high level of quality standards. All raw material ingredients are produced in food safety-approved facilities and undergo stringent testing.
Our Raw Proteins are also Australian Certified Organic (excluding Raw Protein Collagen Plus). To gain this accreditation, the ACO traces each and every ingredient back to the source to ensure it has been grown, harvested and processed in a way that complies with the ACO standards. This means our products are heavy metal tested and free from any synthetic chemicals, pesticides, fertilisers and GMOs.
