The Victorian Government says it will move to ban powdered alcohol, following concerns overseas manufacturers will try to launch their product in the state in the coming months.

The United States government has just approved the sale of “Palcohol” and its manufacturer has reportedly indicated its interest in the Australian market.

To make an instant standard drink, one pouch of the powder is added to three-quarters of a cup of water.

Minister for Liquor Regulation Jane Garrett said she will write to her interstate and federal counterparts on Monday about stopping the powder from flooding the market.
