Frequently Asked Questions
There is a different way to consider food. Nutritious food can be cheap, filling and low-impact.
Aussielent is nutritionally complete powdered food and shakes. Our thoughtful meals are long-life, low waste, satiating, and prepped in under a minute. You can replace one meal, or many – whatever suits your lifestyle.
Our meals contain the recommended intake of just about everything your body needs. Every meal is a nutritionally balanced blend of protein, carbohydrates, fats, fibre, omegas 3 + 6, plus 26 essential vitamins and minerals.
An average meal contains around 500 calories. If you want to reduce both your carbs and your calories, our low-carb products have less of both.
Full nutrition panels, ingredients and allergens can be found on each product's page. Just click on the product you're interested in, via the Shop page.
Our powders are proudly made in Melbourne, in facilities adhering to HACCP and regularly audited by SAI Global, Dairy Food Safety and DAFF. If you’re interested, you can take a peek inside our factory, filmed by 7 News, here.
Our bottles are manufactured separately in Melbourne in the first Australian facility to offer ultra-high temperature (UHT) bottled products utilising cold-fill technology.
All products and labelling align to Food Standards Australia New Zealand – 2.9.3 Formulated Meal Replacements And Formulated Supplementary Foods.
Storage + Preparation
Part of Aussielent’s appeal is its long shelf life. In powdered form, our products remain fresh for 12 months from the date of manufacture. We recommend Aussielent should be stored and sealed in a cool dry place. Our powders come in a re-closable zip-lock pouch for your ease.
Our long life bottles are good for 12-months from the date of manufacture and don’t require refrigeration - however they’re best stored in a cool place (under 25C) out of direct sunlight.
That’s a resounding yes! It’s the very reason we created Aussielent in the first place. Our ready-to-drink bottles are ready to go when you are - just crack the lid. To prepare our powders, simply add water, shake up in a protein shaker, and toast to good health! We like our Aussielent at room temperature. But being Aussie, it can get a little warm sometimes – so give it a chill in the fridge if you prefer.
12 hours. Or, if you’ve opened a bottle, it’s best consumed in one sitting.
Technically, that’s two questions but since you asked...
On the scoop – we’ve found most people have scales or measuring cups in the house and we’d rather not contribute more plastic waste to the world. 130g is approximately 1 cup. Thanks for helping our planet.
You bet, please do! Our cartons are made from 100% recycled cardboard, and can be recycled again. Our bottles are recycling symbol 1 (PET) and can be returned for 10c refund to any container recycling depot or vending machine in WA, NSW, SA, QLD and NT. In VIC and TAS they can go into your yellow recycling bin. We are working to improve our pouches and will be announcing some changes soon. In the meantime they are recycling symbol 7.

New Zealand customers
NZ customers can choose either AusPost Standard international or AusPost Express international.
AusPost Standard Intl shipping time is 5-10 business days.
AusPost Express Intl shipping time is 2-5 business days.
Shipping costs are calculated at checkout depending on the weight.
If you order a few products, sometimes due to weight we'll send these across two or three separate boxes. In this case, you should be able to them listed separately in your Aus Post tracking link (look for a dropdown under the tracking showing, for example, Item 1/2 and Item 2/2). We always despatch orders with multiple cartons together, but on occasion they become separated in transit and one may arrive slightly earlier than the other. Normally the second box is only a day behind its friend!
We apologise but due to occupational health and safety laws, we can’t have pickups from our warehouse. We also don’t want you to see how much fun we have at work – it wouldn’t be fair. We appreciate your understanding.
We want you to be happy with your order! If there are any issues or you have any questions please email us and we are very happy to help.

Our low-carb shakes reduce hunger by providing protein rich meals throughout the day. Protein is well known for improving satiety, reducing cravings, and providing a sense of lasting fullness. It's also an essential building block for lean muscle.
Some snacks are included in our example meal plans at the times of day when you might need an energy boost. These smaller meals will help keep your overall weight loss program on track.
Strenuous exercise isn’t required to get effective results, but physical movement is a key component of both emotional and physical well-being. We suggest 30 minutes a day of walking, yoga or other movement you enjoy.
